Q: What are you looking forward to most this fall?
A: We have a new website coming. We also partnered with a company for social media graphics. I’m also just excited to be here. Last year, I started so close to the beginning of fall sports seasons that I had no time to do anything before the year. It’s been nice to have a full summer.
