Jointly organized by Beth Gottung, Director of Development for Athletics and the Office of Annual Giving, the phone-a-thon was a great experience for the student athletes and a boost for the Department of Athletics.
Just a few days later, six members of the SGA joined the Red Hawk Callers for a day in an effort to raise funds for the Emergency Scholarship Fund and the Red Hawk Pantry. In addition to raising dollars, students also chatted with former SGA alumni about their experiences, and discussed the potential for an SGA Alumni Gathering in conjunction with an SGA meeting.
The six members of the SGA included Matthew Lerman, Executive President; Gianna Zaino, Executive Secretary; Brenden O'Shea, Executive Treasure; Emma Rush, Class IV Director; Desiree Habersham, Legislator and Kaitland Khan, Class I Director. The calling shift was coordinated by Jewel Boyd, Director of Alumni Relations for the SGA, and also a supervisor in the Red Hawk Call Center.
The group raised nearly $600 and garnered interest from 20 alumni who are excited to participate in an upcoming event and connect with the current SGA.
