Abbas and son, Sam
Name: Kelly Abbas
Position: Communication/Registration Director
Background: A network administrator at Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner, Abbas' seemingly is always immersed in technology. She graduated from St. Scholastica in 2001 with a degree in Management Information Systems and got her start using the Sport Ngin platform while doing volunteer work for the Andover Athletic Association’s girls’ traveling basketball program. She took over the website work for the Andover Baseball Association last October.
What she does: Abbas typically devotes her early morning (some days she's up at 4 a.m.) hours to working on the Andover baseball site. In the summer she keeps the site fresh with updates on how the association’s various teams fared at tournaments, and lately she has been posting information on traveling tryout registration, season evaluations and coach applications. Once a week Abbas repurposes information from the site into email form and fires out the newsletter to 3,000 past and current members of the association.
Making her mark: Abbas recently created an equipment swap page that allows members to buy and sell used equipment – Andover baseball's digital version of Play It Again Sports.
