Miriam Wise, Marketing and Development Director
I joined the OACGC team as the Marketing and Development Director after serving as a club advisor for two years at Gamble Montessori. While at Gamble, I worked as the school’s College and Career Readiness Coordinator and helped students prepare their post-secondary pathways. Born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, I left the foothills of the Smoky Mountains to attend the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio.
As Marketing and Development Director for OACGC, I plan monthly fundraisers, manage donors, and build partnerships with local businesses. I also have the pleasure of working closely with OACGC’s grant writer, Sandy Angel, in the research and execution of grant and sponsorship applications.
Much of my efforts are focused on securing funding so OACGC can continue its mission of offering outdoor adventures at no cost to students or schools. Amidst all the challenges of fundraising for a non-profit, nothing distracts me from the reward of providing urban students access to the great outdoors. I invite you to join OACGC in our mission by attending our fundraisers, donating gently used outdoor gear, or contributing to our campaigns.
