It is sad to say that I will actually be leaving my job at Woodbury University. In the spring of 2008, I started working as a Phon-A-Thon Ambassador for the Development Office. Working in this role gave me a strong sense of pride. I was helping my University. A University I have come to love.
After some time working as a Phon-A-Thon Ambassador, I took on the role of Student Supervisor. This position came with more responsibilities and was more time consuming, but it was something I loved doing and was extremely passionate about. This is the position I am leaving behind to other deserving students, as this job is a privilege to hold. I have learned so much from my time working with the Phon-A-Thon and I wouldn’t trade a single day of it.
The people I have come to know are more like family. I care about them, respect them, and enjoy their company. I will never forget my fellow colleagues in the Office of Development & Alumni Relations. I am grateful for what they all have taught me and for making my days so much more exciting. I will truly miss working with all of you!
The 20+ Phon-A-Thon Ambassadors I personally supervised have made working so much fun. I always enjoyed hearing everyone’s stories, laughing, eating, and working towards a common goal. The fact that a few of you have surpassed my fundraising record makes me so happy. I will miss all of you. I am very proud to say that I supervised several groups of dedicated Phon-A-Thon Ambassadors who will go on to do great things in the future.
While I am thrilled to be starting a new chapter in my life, I will miss the Phon-A-Thon dearly. It had become a home away from home over the years. Even though I am leaving, I know that the Phon-A-Thon will be in capable hands. I trust that the next Student Supervisor will proudly take the reins and make the Phon-A-Thon better.
I may be leaving Woodbury as a student worker, but I will never leave the University as a supporter. I am proud to have worked for the Woodbury University Phon-A-Thon and I am proud to be an Alumnae. I will continue supporting the University, but in other ways now. Thank you to everyone! 🙂
