"Out of the many great experiences I had at LSU, from tailgating to lazy days in the Quad, the best I had by far was my involvement in Student Government. I instantly made new friends and met many fellow Tigers who were as dedicated to making LSU a better place as I was. We all had school spirit and translated that energy into leadership and service. The skills I developed in Student Government prepared me for involvement in the Student Bar Association at LSU Law and my current career in government.
While I enjoyed my time serving in Student Government, unfortunately, many of our greatest ideas required funding we didn't have. We either had to raise funds in a unique way or let our ideas fall behind. When I heard Student Life started an alumni program, I was eager to learn more. I didn't think I was the 'donating money' type (I hadn't even had my job for a year yet!), but I found out that any size donation was welcome.
I was excited to learn that I could dedicate my donated funds to a specific area of Student Life like Student Government. I never want current students to be told their ideas aren't worthy of investment. I knew mine were when I was a student, and I trust this generation of Tigers to be just as bright and dedicated. I look forward to helping my alma mater as much as I can in the future.
