Clemson, SC – Clemson student-athletes recently participated in a Thank-a-Thon organized by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Tiger student-athletes spent the evenings of April 24-26 calling IPTAY donors to offer thanks for their contribution to their scholarship. Over sixty student-athletes, representing six different sports, participated in the event and placed calls to over 3000 donors.
SAAC members Jay Crout (men’s swimming and diving) and Ali Zacker (women’s swimming and diving) led the event. Brian O’Rourke and the Clemson Alumni Office provided significant assistance. The Clemson Fund phone office supplied the phone bank and Lynn Story was very helpful with the organization.
The Thank-a-Thon, in its first year, was a great success, and the student-athletes received many positive comments from the donors they spoke with. Tiger student-athletes plan to continue thanking IPTAY donors in the fall.
