Why did you want to be a Director?
Four Diamonds and THON have a special place in my heart. This organization has provided so much hope to me and my family and I am driven to give back in every possible way. Having the ability to share this unwavering hope with every volunteer, family, and stakeholder was my motivation in becoming a Director for THON 2021.
What responsibilities do you have as the Finance Director for THON 2021?
As the Finance Director I am in charge of tracking the total of the THON Communities fundraising efforts, creating and maintaining the THON 2021 budget, as well as producing the Summary of Fundraising Activities for THON 2020. I also work to assure that all monetary donations are processed with integrity by the 23 captains and 75 committee members.
What is your favorite THON memory?
My favorite THON memory was from the total reveal for THON 2020 when my Co-Captain and I were behind the stage working the powerpoint presentation. It was the most surreal feeling when the total cards were raised and we watched the entire crowd in the BJC react to THON's accomplishments. The sense of community and pride was overwhelming, and I will always cherish this moment.
