Most Important Aspect of The ‘See Ya Later’ Foundation:

Even though the Kids Camps are so much fun and it’s so exciting watching them have a great time & getting inspired by awesome volunteers, the Seeds of Hope outreach is near to my heart. Walking through difficult times myself, I love to help bring encouragement to families whether in small or big ways. And yet, when we are able to award some outstanding students a college scholarship on behalf of the ‘See Ya Later’ Foundation, it brings so much joy to my soul.

Why Did You Get Involved with The ‘See Ya Later’ Foundation:

Since Scotty passed away and the Foundation began, I have had a determination to make something very good out of something very bad. The Foundation continues to make that happen. If Scotty HAD to die, his death HAS to make a difference in others’ lives.

Most Memorable ‘See Ya Later’ Moment:

One of the most memorable moments was the celebration and Grand Opening of Scotty’s Playhouse! What an awesome memorial and gift to the community.

Where Do You See Foundation In 5 Years:

In the next 5 years, I see more kids and families encouraged through the many events of the Foundation. I see adding additional staff and more volunteers getting involved and helping coordinate various aspects of the Foundation.
