As a second generation Lumberjack, I'm proud that I joined the NAU family when I was this young. Now it's my turn to help build a better future for the next generation of Jacks 💙💛 #NAUGivingDay #NAUGivingDayChallenge #JacksGiveBack #NAUFamily @NAUAlumni @NAU pic.twitter.com/z4J0wz9vq0

Giving back to the Veteran community at NAU is so very important to me. I will always be thankful for the support I was provided. My Axe of Kindness will support the Native American Veteran Memorial Scholarship. #NAUGivingDay
