We are proud to announce Sheryl DeBoard, owner of the high-end clothing boutique In My Element, has given a $35,000 in-kind donation.
Sheryl opened In My Element in 2009, wanting to create an inspiring place to shop for fashionable and functional Women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories. She graduated from UAF in 1980 and skied competitively at UAF for four years.
“It’s a great opportunity to give back to my alma mater,” Sheryl said. “I wanted to give back to a school that’d given so much to me. Sharing is a big part of Fairbanks and UAF – I’m honored to be able to be a part of that.”
Watch what Sheryl has to say about giving back:
Sheryl was inspired to give to the UAF School of Management by her employee and UAF student, Taylor Eckert. Taylor will graduate from UAF in 2015 with a BA in history and a minor in marketing. She served as president of the School of Management student organization Students Offering Leadership Development for three years and has been actively involved at the School of Management through events such as Business Leader of the Year.
See what Taylor has to say about working at In My Element:
The clothes given to the School of Management will be provided to students for use in interviews, business events, and for practice dressing professionally. Students will earn clothes through extracurricular participation in workshops and events focusing on confidence building, interview preparation, and presenting a professionally polished image.
