Family Memory: My favorite family memory is really an accumulation of memories. Over the past seven years, my family has been taking trips from Chicago to Champaign to visit my brother, sister and myself at the University of Illinois for: football games, parent's weekend(s), commencement ceremonies, and orientations. The University of Illinois has been such a big part of my life and the life of my siblings, and I love experiencing campus traditions with my family.
Chevrolet Pride Crew Memory: The best Chevrolet Pride Crew memory was speaking with a young fan at her first Chicago White Sox baseball game. As our conversation progressed, I began to see a Chicago White Sox game day experience through the eyes of a fan that was experiencing everything for the first time: the sights, sounds, and feelings of excitement. It gave me a new perspective on the little things that makes Chicago White Sox game day experiences so special. These types of interactions with fans are what make working with the Chevrolet Pride Crew so rewarding.
