The SJ5K Adult Board is made up of volunteers who develop student leadership, provide community outreach, and consistency year to year.

Amy is from Plymouth, Mich., and is currently studying public relations with an emphasis in social entrepreneurship and corporate communications at Belmont University. She remains active on campus, serving as a resident assistant, the director of Special Events for “Relay for Life,” a member of Tower Creative Consultants and a member of PRSSA. She coordinated the SJ5k in 2015, and now is the Director of PR and Student Leadership (I think… you can change this) on the SJ5K board. Dalton is passionate about working with students to help them become leaders and build confidence within their work.

I am honored to have been a part of the SJ5k from it's beginning on a glorious rainy May morning in 20--.  I am dedicated to this cause because I firmly believe that life is meant to live in community and I can think of no better community in which to reside.  Plymouth/Canton is the area that my family has called home for over 21 years.  The SJ5k strives to come alongside local families that are in need of community support.  Watching students, every year,  hone their leadership skills while extending empathy and compassion to their neighbors is truly a blessing.  My role for the SJ5k is simply to foster relationships with caring community businesses that choose to give back by giving money to our worthy cause.

I have been part of the SJ5K since the beginning and have three kids that graduated from Salem (’11,’13, ’16).  By being part of the event from the beginning it has been great to witness the community come together year over year for great causes. Watching the SJ5K community grow and provide a source of knowledge and support in the community gives me great pride to be part of this event.

My SJ5K main responsibilities include leading the course design and setup, coordinating day of the run logistics and manage race day course volunteers
