Latham Centers is fortunate to have two additions to its small development team this summer.
In May, Katrina Fryklund of Wellfleet was hired as the new part-time Development Associate replacing the retiring Gail Meyers-Lavin.
Katrina is busy promoting the Cape Associates Playhouse Raffle to benefit Latham and taking on new web and support projects to bolster Latham’s fundraising efforts. She graduated this year with a Summa Cum Laude MS degree in Professional Communication: Marketing from Clark University.
As a Clark student, Katrina interned and was later hired at Girls Inc. of Worcester—a nonprofit inspiring girls to “challenge themselves to learn, grow, and be an effective part of our community.”
Marcus Bailey was hired as a summer intern to primarily promote donations and sponsors for the Fourth Annual Latham Charity Golf Classic. Marcus is a rising Junior at Davidson College majoring in Political Science and minoring in Economics and French. He has lived around the world, but currently calls New York City his permanent home and Cape Cod his summer home. Last summer, he interned at the American Action Forum in Washington, D.C. –“an independent and nonpartisan research institution engaging civil society, philanthropy, policymakers, academics and other thought leaders who shape American policy.” This fall, Marcus heads to Tours, France to master his French during a semester abroad.
Both Fryklund and Bailey report to Gerry Desautels, VP of Development & Community Outreach, who is “truly grateful for the extra heads, hands and legs to cover the Cape and the cyber world.” According to Desautels, “Latham is developing a greater recognition in the community. As such, we are also steadily increasing our level of community support. Vibrant new part-time and seasonal staff helps to accomplish all the good that we want to achieve on behalf of our children and adults with special needs.”
