"I'm passionate about philanthropy because it impacts numerous people for generations to come and allows individuals to help build their legacies. It's inspiring to see the transformation that higher education has on people, knowing some of them wouldn't have access to it without philanthropy. Seeing philanthropy at work, and how much it has transformed NDSU in the past few years alone makes me passionate about my continued work here."
