Sara Mata, NASPA IV-W Foundation Ambassador
November 25, 2017
NASPA Region IV-W is thankful to our NASPA Foundation Diamond Club members! Leading up to the National Day of Giving on November 28th, we will be featuring a regional member as they share their reason for why they give.
Featuring Dr. Jerrid P. Freeman, IV-W Region Director and Vice President for Student Affairs at Northeastern State University
I have been a member of NASPA for almost 20 straight years, been in three different NASPA regions, and served at eight different institutions. My career has been filled with transitions, fear, excitement, opportunities, challenges and chaos. While I have garnered a significant network of colleagues, friends, and mentors that I can lean on or vice versa through times of struggle or joy, NASPA has been a constant. I have volunteered countless hours over the years to the association at the national, regional, and local level. I have been developed and enhanced exponentially and the friends and contacts I have developed through NASPA are the cornerstone of my career. I have given, but received so much more. I continue giving back to NASPA nationally and regionally and try to be the person to encourage and help others along the way also. NASPA continues to evolve and be a commanding and wise voice for the profession. For these reasons I give and continue to give. Thank you NASPA and those that makes it a special organization.
