Welcome Our 2016 Fall Intern

Welcome our newest member to the Lumpkin Family Foundation.

Sarah Cowger is joining the Lumpkin Family Foundation as an intern for fall 2016. She is currently a student at Eastern Illinois University where she is pursuing a degree in business management with a concentration in human resources and a minor in marketing. She will be graduating in May of 2017. 

At Eastern Illinois University, Sarah is involved with many organizations including EIU Pink Panther Dance Team, Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority, and she is also an ambassador for the Lumpkin School of Business. With being involved on campus, she has had the opportunity to study abroad in Dublin, Ireland and volunteer with philanthropic events helping both local and national charities. 

Being born and raised in Mattoon, Illinois, Sarah has been able to see some of the many great projects that The Lumpkin Family Foundation has contributed to in Coles County as well as east central Illinois.
