Why did you become involved with the PAA? I have always been proud to be a product of Parkway and have enjoyed leadership opportunities and the chance to give back to the district.
PAA Leadership Roles: Former board president (3 terms), Granting Dreams program chairperson (since 1996), Hall of Fame co-chair, chairperson for the Rise and Shine Leadership Breakfast, volunteer for the Golf Tournament, chairperson for the Celebration Committee
Other Leadership Roles: USA Pickleball Ambassador for the St. Louis Metro area, VP of Communications for Alpha Chi Omega, Sigma Sigma Alumni Chapter
Favorite PAA project: My favorite PAA role has been my involvement with the Granting Dreams program. It not only allows students outstanding opportunities, but is also a great outreach for memorial fund families to honor their loved ones. It truly demonstrates what giving back looks like full circle. I also enjoy planning, welcoming back and celebrating the accomplishments of our amazing HOF awardees.
