Presentation and Bake Sale!

Last night was my senior seminar presentation! It went amazing! I felt so confident and good, and I knew what I was talking about! One of my professors told me today that I did the best! I was so excited! He told me that he could tell I knew what I was talking about and that I answered all the questions perfectly! I was so proud! My cousin who graduated from UIS in 2007 came and watched my presentation and said it was awesome! I was so glad she came! She said coming back to UIS made her miss going to school there! Hopefully she will come back and finish her Masters!

Today was the bake sale! It was a long and hectic day! We started our day at 9:30 and we were not finished until 5:30. Who would of guessed a bake sale was so much work! Lindzee, the secretary, and I were the only ones that worked it all day! It was miserable! I wish we would of had more workers but we made it through! Alex did stop by when he dropped his goodies off and helped for a while but besides that we did everything! We got a lot of compliments though! A lot of people were so impressed by us having a popcorn machine at the bake sale! They said it was a good marketing strategy! They were also impressed with how much food we had and how elaborate our bake sale was! I was so excited to hear all these raving reviews about our bake sale! It was a lot of hard work to get it together!

In all we made $478.16, which is amazing! Last year they made a total of $450, which means we beat them! And last year they had a lot more help than Lindzee and I did! So I am quite excited that we did such an amazing job! It was great! And it goes to such an amazing cause! The Brian McMillian Scholarship goes to a criminal justice student who deserves it!

I have finished two of my classes for the semester! I am so excited for break to start! It is going to be amazing to have some time off!



Heyy Everyone!
Today I had my first meeting as being president of Alpha Phi Sigma, the Criminal Justice National Honor Society! It was a lot of information about how to run a student organization and the rules and guidelines! After the meeting, the vice president and secretary and I got together and did some talking about the organization! One thing that our organization raises money for is the Brian McMillian scholarship. Brian McMillian was a graduate of UIS and a Illinois State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty. We now give a scholarship to a student in name of him! We want to raise a lot of money this year so that maybe we can give more than one scholarship in name of Brian McMillian! Only problem is, we do not have a lot of member since it is an invite only club, and we do not have any good ideas for fundraising!
So I ask you, what are some fundraisers you may have done in the past? What fundraisers have you done that have been super successful, or even ones that weren’t that successful? We will take any ideas that we get! Also if we do set up fundraisers, we would love if people who are not involved in our organization to help out! It is for a good cause and the more the merrier!

So if you have any fundraising ideas, please comment on this and let me know what your thinking!! Thanks!
