Because of You

About Me

 My name is Katie Jo Hamre and I am a current Senior at Sweet Briar College with a major in Psychology and minors in Dance and Arts Management.  My passion of working in development began my first year at Sweet Briar through my campus job in the Alumnae Office and continues today. In this position, I am given the opportunity to work with staff and peers on annual events such as Reunion, Homecoming, Sweet Briar Days and Presidential Events, and trusted to work directly with Donors, Volunteers and Alumnae.  I also work as a student caller for Phonathon acting as a direct representative of the Annual Fund.  At Sweet Briar, I have been very involved in community service and served on the Student Relations Committee, a sub committee of the Alumnae Board, for three years.  As a junior, I served as a Junior Banquet Co-Chair planning the dinner banquet to carry on a Sweet Briar Tradition.  In my spare time, I enjoy dancing in college dance concerts as well as being an active member of the Bum Chums, a community service club, and Taps n Toes, a dance club on campus, while maintaining my scholarships and spot on Dean’s List.  I am now continuing my leadership on campus as a Senior Class Campaign Co-Chair with the challenge of raising $6,000 for the Annual Fund while managing a committee of 13 girls, and also through my current internship with Development.  Through this internship, I have been given the chance to reach out to YOU  the Alumnae, Donors, Volunteers, Faculty, Staff and Students who have made my experience at Sweet Briar so special, and show how grateful I, as a Sweet Briar student, am for YOUR gifts to the Annual Fund and how these gifts go to work on a daily basis to keep this campus alive!  BECAUSE OF YOU… and your gifts to the Annual Fund, my experience at Sweet Briar has been one of privilege, see how
