He began by working for ARC in the summer of 2012. He successfully completed the application for Bloomington-Normal to be one of Top 100 Best Communities for Young People (http://www.americaspromise.org/Our-Work/100-Best-Communities-for-Young-People/2011-Winners/Bloomington-Normal-IL.aspx).  Ted was also part of the fall 2012 Action Research seminar. He worked in a small group to support Westside small business owners as they launched Facebook campaigns. (insert handout from the training Cameron did summer 2013 “Building your presence with Facebook pages: a guide for causes and nonprofits”). In the spring of 2013, Ted took the ARC Grant Writing class and partnered with marcfirst (marcfirst.org). His mini-grant idea was to connect the athletic trainers from Shirk with the participants in the FriendsFirst program that operates at Second Presbyterian.

Ted was part of the leadership team that got Tari Renner elected as Mayor of Bloomington in 2013. He managed IWU interns, managed the social media for the campaign, and staffed numerous events.

As the President of the 2013 Senior Class, Ted gave ARC a shout out in his commencement speech (http://www.iwu.edu/commencement/2013/delicath.html). The class of 2013 broke records for class giving with over 70% of seniors making a contribution. It is hoped that this level of commitment will continue for the class of 2013 and all classes that follow.

Ted now lives in St. Louis and is one of the 2013 Coro Fellows (http://www.coro.org/site/c.geJNIUOzErH/b.4667963/).
