Sharon Rady is in her 24th year working in the Colorado State athletic department. A former volleyball student-athlete at CSU, she began her employment on Sept. 1, 1988.
Rady has overseen the Rams' ticket office for more than two decades. She and her staff are responsible for all aspects of ticket sales at all football, basketball and volleyball contests.
Her team manages the 1-800/491-RAMS phone line, the online CSURams.com software, the mid-week sales at the McGraw Center box office and the walk-up sales and will call offices at both Hughes Stadium and Moby Arena. She also travels to road football contests and the annual Mountain West Conference basketball tournament, to handle the Rams' ticket distribution.
Prior to returning to her alma mater, Rady worked as an executive assistant for the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce (1983-88), as a program director for the Fort Collins Tennis and Sports Center (1982-84), and as a field supervisor for the City of Greeley (Colo.) Parks and Recreation Department (1981-82). In addition, she spent the fall of 1982 as the head volleyball coach at Greeley West High School.
A scholarship student-athlete, Rady lettered four consecutive years from 1977-80 for the Colorado State volleyball team. Rady contributed to the team's success in 1980 when the Rams finished second in their respected conference. She was also named first-team all-conference in both her sophomore and junior years. The highlight of Rady's volleyball career came her senior year when she was recognized as an All-America nominee. Her volleyball background continued to diversify as she also trained with Team USA during the summer of 1979, and was a competitive player on one of the U.S. Volleyball Association teams.
Rady was born and raised in Northern Colorado, growing up in Greeley. Rady spent most of her time playing and competing in several athletic venues. Rady graduated from Greeley (Colo.) West High School and went on to earn her bachelor's degree in physical education from Colorado State ('83). She resides with her pet toy poodle, Ginger, in Fort Collins.
