West Chester University will welcome recent graduate Courtland Bragg, Class of 2014, on Monday, April 3 as the inaugural speaker in the College of Arts and Humanities Alumni Speaker Series.

After graduation, Bragg became the youngest full-time employee at NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, N.J. He has directed, produced, and edited content for shows airing on ESPN, CBS Sports, NFL Network, and Nickelodeon.

In 2016, he became an Emmy Award-winner as an Associate Producer for HBO’s Hard Knocks Featuring the Houston Texans.

“A year ago, I was a substitute teacher contemplating my career during my lunch breaks,” said Bragg.

“I enjoyed trying to inspire my students through my testimony, hoping to be a light to maybe just one kid in my class. I wasn’t where I wanted to be at the time, but I had to realize God was humbling me in order to understand I was always in his hand.

“A year later at 23 years young, I’m an Emmy Award-winning Associate Producer for NFL Films. There is always a blessing in the storm. Anything is possible.”

Bragg is also a Multimedia Journalist for Guru Media Group in West Chester. He has covered athletes like Jordan Burroughs, an Olympic gold medalist in wrestling, and Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz, also a WCU product.

The event will take place in the Ware Family Recital Hall of the Swope Music Building. It is free to attend, but registration is required. A reception will be held from 6-7:15 PM, and Bragg’s speaking engagement will be from 7:15-9 PM.
