Graduate Student Conference: ‘Education in Uncertain Times’, March 9, 2018
I had the honor of leading the College of Education’s annual graduate student conference alongside 6 amazing colleagues (below). It was the second largest event I’ve ever organized and the most challenging logistically. We were able to keep tabs on all the moving parts through months of preparation and the day-of went without a hitch.
Fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, 2016 - Present
My work with ACS mostly revolves around fundraising, the biggest being Harry Potter-themed events in the fall. We raised a total of $2,056 in 2017 from our second trivia event and $6,809 in 2018 from our first murder mystery dinner party. Every year I work with 4 of the most talented, creative, and kind people from the community: Jill Rannebarger, Marijane Cronk, Chris McConkey, and Michael Giger. The team gives the venue a complete makeover, transforming from Elk's Lodge to Hogwarts overnight, and the majority of items sold at the event are entirely handmade. Chocolate frog or a Demeter’s Kiss, anyone?
