Clarkson Student Selected As Delegate To Professional Conference
Clarkson University's Clarkson Fund office has announced that Michael Ogaard, a junior from Berne, N.Y., has been selected as a CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) Student Delegate to attend the combined CASE Districts I and II Conference in Toronto, January 31-February 3.
A double major in mechanical engineering and management, Ogaard has been involved with the Clarkson Fund-Raising Phonathon since his freshman year, becoming one of the best callers, who both enjoyed talking to alumni and raising funds for student financial aid. This fall, he was promoted to phonathon manager, along with Sara Miceli '99 of Delanson, N.Y.
To date, the Phonathon has raised over $432,000 in pledges.
It was a very tough decision to select the 12 student delegates, commented Kristin Lynch, chairperson of the program and assistant director of Alumni Relations at Fordham University. "Mike's application was very strong."
Student delegates have the "run of the conference," which provides them with the opportunity to explore future career avenues in advancement.
The CASE Combined Conference for Districts I and II is attended by colleges and independent schools from the United States and Canada.
