Major: Sports Leadership I was in charge of gathering data, pictures, and writing excerpts for the Annual Giving Guide for the recent school year. The annual report outlines accomplishments of the athletes, teams, and what the money that was donated went to. The 20 page guide was recently completed by a graphic designer and will be released online and in print. I have also helped with creating letters to donors and compiling donor gifts.
Major: Sports Leadership I am working with the YMCA inner city baseball/softball program. I have done everything and anything that is needed of me. I go to fields and make sure everything is running smooth, I pass out food to kids, I register kids, I update rosters, and I recruit players and coaches.
Major: Allied Health Science A large part of my job here was to expand the resources for schools who had purchased the be nice. kits. This resource list included additional games, songs, books, activities, and fundraising ideas. The teachers have access to a portal where all this information is available to them in hopes that they can pick a new activity just to re-enforce the be nice. model monthly. I also was able to teach some lessons in both elementary and middle school. This was a wonderful experience because I personally was able to help educate the young minds with tools that will help in their futures.
