“The Development Foundation is an essential part of creating a strong foundation for the University’s future.  So when you ask me why volunteering my time on the Development Foundation is important, it is easy to serve when something has had that big of an impact on my life both professionally and personally.  I see my Board service as one small way to give back a little of what the University has given me.”
