Junior marketing major from Sugarland
“Last year taught me and all the co-chairs about how to be flexible and adapt to situations that were changing all the time or just new experiences: having to deal with large groups of people and navigate peer relationships and plan for a big event like Sing Song. I think that flexibility and adaptability that we learned last year will come in handy this year as we’re making a lot of big changes, with new ways of doing things internally but also new things people see on stage that weekend. I think the thing I love most about this role is the ability to collaborate with new ideas and working with Nick Tatum this upcoming year. He’s a big fan of bringing new things to the table and so that’s something we’re really excited about is all the new and fresh ideas that we can collaborate on.”

“Last year, I got to serve as one of the production co-chairs. And so through that, I got to learn a ton about just organization in terms of the the ticket sales, the pre merchandise sales the advertising sales and then also getting a lot of customer service experience running the house and things like that. I’m hoping to take that and expand on it a little bit this year. My role will be a little bit more centralized-based as I’m the business co-chair specifically. We’ve kind of rearranged the roles a little bit. My focus will be exclusively on merchandise, advertising and ticketing and I’ll just get to take those and really hone in on them and make sure everything is as good as it can be. This year, I’m really excited to bring some experience to the team.

“We have a lot of ideas that we’re toying with that we think will make it a lot easier for directors to access all the information anytime they want. It’ll really just make it easier for them to know what needs to be done which will hopefully make it a better show and all. So that’s one thing that we’re really pushing on. That’s probably the majority of my job, at least time-wise. That’s what I’m working on in the fall and then, as we get closer to Sing Song, it’s one of my main responsibilities. Building more effective ways of communicating information to directors and stuff like that is my main kind of goal. It’s an awesome community and experience to be able to build this awesome Sing Song environment that everyone gets so passionate about. It really motivates the entire campus around one thing for that period of time and seeing it all from the ground up and being able to have a hand in constructing the environment is really special to me. I’ve never really experienced anything like it for sure.”

“We’ll be able to kind of reassess the way we’ve done things traditionally and together make decisions on what we should rethink or what we should maintain. I think having that experience from last year is gonna be really really helpful this year. I love getting to create and participate in an ACU tradition that is so important and meaningful to so many of our alumni. So many past wildcats around the world still come back for Sing Song and have fond memories of their time in Sing Song. I think it’s something that really unites our alumni and our school. So it’s valuable to me to be able to participate in that and help keep that tradition alive. That’s what I love about Sing Song.”

“This year I just want for us to put on the best show that we possibly can. That’s my goal and that is my expectation that me and the other team directors and Nick Tatum are gonna do with all the clubs and the class acts. That’s my expectation. I hope to bring just some different perspectives because after doing downstage crew, I know how things run. I’m the technical student director this year, so I’m just going and having a position to where I can delegate how things are done.”
