Ways Varsity Brands supports the military
ConnectionOur Diveristy, Equity & Inclusion councils are specifically formatted to support all demographics and backgrounds. Each DEI council has veterans representation to ensure the military perspective is heard and included.
CommunityHerff Jones and BSN SPORTS has proudly provided sports equipment and apparel as well as class rings for the United States Military Academy, Naval Academy, Coast Guard, the Air Force and the Merchant Marine Academy.
Along with the Academies and Prep Schools, BSN SPORTS also partners with all military installations worldwide and serve VA Medical Centers and Wounded Warrior programs.
Customer SupportIn 2020, Herff Jones, a Varsity Brands Company, partnered with the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association to offer alumni a chance to own a rare piece of history — part of the Naval Academy Chapel dome. While undergoing renovation, the copper removed from the dome was repurposed into heirlooms available for purchase by alumni.
I have learned the value of being strong to your core values, and to lean on your team when you need help. In the military, we are always looking for what is next, whether it be developing our team to lead or taking on a new mission with little time to adapt. Integrity, Service, and Excellence are also part of our core values, so it was a natural fit. The Varsity Brands team is a family very much like what I had in the Air Force, and they really support you and help you be successful.

Varsity Spirit was always extremely supportive of my role in the Army National Guard. As a citizen soldier, there were times I would need to be off of work for drill or two-week training drills and Varsity always understood and was very supportive of my military commitments. I deployed overseas for a year and I do not think a month went by that I did not receive a care package from someone at work. This company is an amazing place to work and very supportive of our veterans and active guard members.
VP, Operations, Training & Education Army National Guard
I spent 11 years in the national guard doing work that honestly, on the surface, doesn’t transfer from a technical perspective. However the leadership lessons, working with people at all levels, from all walks of life are by far the most transferable skills. While Herff Jones is undergoing trasnformation efforts, it takes some grit and hustle, you learn quickly in the military if you have those in you and you build on them, that makes the pain of change and the grind more manageable after the military.

Varsity Brands has an inclusive culture, which I have enjoyed since I first started. This is key to attracting veterans or groups from any walk of life to the company. Ramon GonzalezSr Vice President, Supply Chain & Operations United States Navy
Team Sales is a competitive environment, and Veterans tend to be motivated by competition and succeed in that type of environment. Veterans understand what is it like to be part of a team, working towards a common goal, understand what it is like to make sacrifices, and understand how to lead and be led. When I left the Army and entered the corporate world, I missed the sense of teamwork and camaraderie that I shared with the soldiers in my unit. The closest I have come to that kind of relationship is with my teammates in my region at BSN.Carlos TrujilloSales Professional United States Army
As a BSN sales professional, I enjoy the day-to-day ability to meet and talk with coaches and athletic directors. The mindset to work hard, stay on task and be detailed oriented in the military has helped my professional career. Varsity Brands is a great place to work due to flexibility, secure employment, professional training and challenging work. I think one the most attractive factors is the opportunity to engage in team-oriented work. Bill GillispieSales Professional
