I’m honored to share that I was chosen as Macalester’s Macbassador, Alumni Volunteer, for the month of July. Here’s what they had to say about me:
For her steadfast dedication to strengthening the Macalester community, Heather Lendway ’06 is our Macbassador of the Month for July.
Lendway, a math and computer science double major, is a programmer analyst for Securian Financial Group as well as an accomplished triathlete. As a co-chair for the young Macalester Alumni Connect (yMac) steering committee, Lendway provides strong and consistent leadership as well as a welcoming presence at all yMac events. Over the past few years Lendway also dedicated a significant amount of time to working with students as a volunteer coach for swimming and water polo teams, a first-year dinner host, a mentor at student networking events and as a prolific MacMail writer.
“My years at Macalester were some of the greatest,” said Lendway. “I feel grateful to have been part of such a unique community of students passionate about the environment, politics, research and so much more. I had incredibly supportive professors and made lifelong friends in my years at Macalester. What I give back to Macalester is nothing compared to what my experience at Macalester gave to me; I’ll continue to give what I can in hopes that future students feel the same.”
On top of her substantial contributions of time and talent, Lendway is also a sustaining donor for the Annual Fund and a member of the Summit and Grand Societies.
