Yamhill HighFlyers Basketball
Yamhill County's first and only professional sports team makes it's inaugural season in 2010 as a part of the up and coming International Basketball League. I worked as an intern for the HighFlyers, working hands on with owner and general manager Eric Bailey in various areas such as: promotions, marketing, game day operations, stats, and game film.
In June 2009 I was blessed with the opportunity to be a part of a team from WOU that went to Cape Verde, Africa to serve in 3 separate school's/orphanages. This was an amazing opportunity where we got to play with the kids and perform work projects on their facilities. Collectively we tried to gather as much supplies as we could before hand so that we could bring each orphanage things they needed most. We brought games, sports equipment, food, crafts, hygiene supplies, and tools to help service the specific needs of each facility. It was a phenomenal experience and a great opportunity to work as a team to make it all happen.
A few of the many fundraisers we put on included multiple benefit concerts, bake sales, car washes, and my favorite...Donkey Basketball!
