As I have probably mentioned before, I majored in fashion merchandising at Fontbonne for my undergraduate degree. I still keep in contact with all of the wonderful professors in the department, and always let them know if they need anything. A few weeks ago, the director of the program, Dr. Liljequist, told me she had some ideas on how we can collaborate. She asked if I would be interested in updating some of the bulletin boards in the business department hallways. I love any sort of crafty project, so of course I said yes! This will be a task that I complete throughout the end of the semester and into the early parts of summer. That way, when students come back for the fall semester, the walls will look fresh and updated. While I am doing this, I’ll also help clean up our resources room in fashion merchandising so things are easy to find for the next group of students that will be using the space for various projects.

I don’t have any pictures to post yet, as I am still in the beginning stages of this project. But I will say that I have a lot of ideas up my sleeve that are very different from what’s currently there! I hope the students that end up walking the halls of AB (Anheuser-Busch building) will enjoy the new look of the department. If you continue to keep in touch with teachers, advisors, coworkers, etc., you never know what opportunities may come out of the connections. Whether it’s a small task or a potential job, it’s important to nurture the relationships and connections you make in life. Because I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the fashion merchandising department, I will always have an interest in helping them out. I just can’t stay away. 🙂

Since the beginning of November, my life has pretty much been consumed by the world of Mary Poppins. The Fort Zumwalt East (FZE) theater department is producing this show, and the performances are next week! My main role is to produce all of the costumes, hair, and makeup. Which is a LOT! We have over 120 costumes for this show, because there are so many large dance numbers. Plus, all of the main characters change throughout the show. I have been working on this nearly every single day for the last few months. I have accomplished so much, but am still working on getting the finishing touches together this week. I’m sure I will also be doing last minute alterations next week as well.

Up until this point, the cast and crew have rehearsed each individual scene, but have not pieced the whole thing together. So that is what everyone is working on this week! As I see costumes on the stage from an audience’s perspective, I find different issues here and there that need to be addressed. The next couple weeks are going to be extremely tiring, as we are at the school from 7 am to about 11 pm every day. Plus, weekend rehearsals. But, the students are doing some amazing work, so I know that all the long hours will definitely be worth it! As Mary Poppins says, “anything can happen if you let it.”

As an undergrad I was involved with the social work club. I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d like to due to being a non traditional student and having children at home to take care of. But now that my children are a bit older. It’s still a task, but I’m currently a part of the Alumni Board. I was recently selected in July 2016 and have attended both meetings so far. It has been a wonderful experience. I have met many people from all ages, experiences and backgrounds that have one mission, and that is to build the Fontbonne community while thriving to engage, educate and enhance all students including alums as well as each other.

I know that joining the board will not only be a perk for resume purposes but most importantly for building new friendships with people that believe in what you believe in “Working Towards a Common Good.” Joining the board has been one great decision I’ve made!

You should consider too!

Who “SHE” Is?

by Candance on September 6, 2016

in Extracurricular

I was born and raised in Saint Louis, MO and graduated from Jennings High school. I am a child of God and I love serving others. I do my best to stay active within the community as much as possible, and I have trained my children to do the same. I am an alumni of Fontbonne with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Service and current grad student pursuing my Master of Science degree in Instructional Design & Technology (IDT). I am a mother of two sons, an aunt to two wonderful nephews and 6 beautiful nieces. I am the great aunt to two great nieces and two great nephews.

I enjoy dreaming and doing things outside of the norm. I’ve gone horseback riding, ridden on a motorcycle and ziplined and would love to do it all again. I would like to one day travel internationally again doing mission work, go snorkling, parasailing, jet skiing, helicopter riding, hot air ballooning and more. As for now, I enjoy going to the movies whether alone or with others, out to eat, walking in the park and spending time with family and friends.
