On and off the basketball court, FAMU alumna Natalie White has a standout career in the sports industry. Since her time on the “Hill,” Natalie has always possessed a strong drive and passion for athletics.
Natalie serves as the senior vice president of the Los Angeles Sparks and is the founder and executive director of Natalie White Basketball, LLC, which serves more than 1,500 children and is centered on academics and basketball fundamentals.
“I look forward to the opportunity and challenge of impacting our community, building lasting relationships and working with the staff to create an amazing experience for our fans,” said Natalie White during an announcement about her role as senior vice president.
Natalie earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in sports management from FAMU. Her basketball career at the University, from 1991-1995, earned her several acknowledgments including being named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) “Rookie of the Year” in 1992 and the MEAC “Player of the Year” in 1995. She was inducted into the MEAC Hall of Fame in 2011, and both Peach County High School and FAMU retired her jerseys. The three-time All-MEAC honoree also guided the Rattlers to two regular season conference titles and the 1995 MEAC Championship.
