Noblesville Millers Backers Intern Matthew Grabek

Matthew Grabek, a senior at Noblesville High School (NHS), has enjoyed his internship with the Noblesville Miller Backers, the school’s official athletic booster organization.

The Miller Backers organization supports all of the NHS athletic teams and athletes with grants and scholarships. Matthew’s internship has given him a valuable look at how marketing programs work, which will help him in the future.

His mother, Rachael Grabek, says Matthew, 18, has a lot of job responsibilities including taking inventory of the football and basketball concession stands, and handles them successfully.

“He collects, counts and redistributes the money bags from the concession stands,” Rachel adds.

He also makes sure there is enough to eat and drink for all the Miller football and basketball fans. “Matthew restocks all the concession stands with food and drinks,” Rachael says.

He also assists with other tasks. “Matthew helps [Miller Backers President] Chris Beaver, who runs the concession stands with special projects,” Rachael says. “For instance, one project was creating a Google form to help Chris run the concession stands more efficiently. Matthew also updates all the sports calendars for Chris and helps him with other sports-related tasks.”

Rachael says Matthew also helps Ali Alvey, who serves on the Miller Backers board, at the school with special projects. “For instance, one project was delivering special certificates to the Miller Backers supporters,” Rachael says.

Matthew also liked learning more about marketing.

“He likes experiencing the sports marketing world outside of the classroom,” Rachael says.

Matthew also enjoys working with his supervisors.

“He likes working with Chris and Ali,” Rachael says. “They make his internship more exciting,”

Matthew also keeps busy with other work activities.

“Matthew is the assistant manager at Birdies mini golf in Westfield,” Rachael says. “In the winter he works as a host or food runner at Birdie’s Grill House and Sports Bar.”

Matthew also finds time for recreational activities. “He likes to work out at the gym,” Rachael says. “He likes spending time outside on the lake in the summer.”

Rachael says Matthew has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Noblesville High School.

“What he likes best about school is being around his friends,” Rachael says. “He also enjoys watching the sporting activities, as well as fall break, winter break, spring break and summer break.”

Matthew is also a great student, continually putting in many study hours to get good grades on his exams.

“He will be graduating from Noblesville High School with honors,” Rachael says.

Matthew is also making plans for college and setting his sights on the future.

“He will be attending Indiana University Bloomington in the fall,” Rachael says. “He is a direct admit into the Kelley School of Business. He wants to go into the sports marketing and management field.”
