Sun Roesslein, CSFM, has been Sports Stadium Manager at the North Area Athletic Complex for 12 years. She is responsible for overseeing and maintaining the football stadium and the soccer stadium which make up the NAAC. The complex is the home field for 6 of the high schools in the Jefferson County School District. Sun got her start in the turfgrass management industry working on the grounds crew for the Lexington Legends Minor League baseball team in 2001. After moving to Denver she worked briefly for the City of Thornton before taking her current position with Jeffco Schools Athletics. In 2014, the NAAC soccer field was awarded STMA's Soccer Field of the Year for the Schools and Parks category. The following year, the NAAC football field was selected as STMA's 2015 Football Field of the Year in the same category.
Sun received her B.S. in 2000 and M.S. in 2002 from Eastern Kentucky University in Sports Administration. It was during her final semester that she discovered the turfgrass industry and decided to make a career path change. She became a member of STMA in 2002. She is a Past President of the Rocky Mountain Regional Turfgrass Association, served on the CSTMA Board of Directors, and has been a member of STMA's Ethics committee and currently the Website/ Technology committee.

Vision for STMA: I believe STMA is continually improving and moving in the right direction to stay on top of concerns that face us as Sports Turf Managers. I am proud to have been a member for almost 15 years now. The Annual conference is something I always look forward to, and would like to contribute to making the show great. As a member of the Technology committee, I see opportunities for improvement to the STMA website. With the website being the online face of our organization, I think it is imperative that we use that stage to continue to promote the professionalism, education, commitment to safety and passion we all share in this industry.
