Chris
Major: Sports Leadership I was responsible for donor prospect research, reaching out and thanking donors, answering phone calls, updating personal information, and helping out in any other way that the team needed. My three months here were a very busy time for us because we run on a fiscal year from July 1st - June 30th. I also did a lot of administrative work to help keep our office from falling behind. This work included folding thank you letters, stuffing envelopes, creating new donor packets, scanning in pledge forms, and doing mail runs.

As Director of Junior Golf, I was able to communicate with parents and participants about league schedules and rules. I was able to help and organize both the junior leagues and the adult leagues so that they were able to play every week throughout the summer.
