Dawson_WPBethany Dawson works hard to empower others. The Muma Scholar mentors first year students and encourages them to attend professional development events hosted by the highly selective Bulls Business Community. She says the BBC gave her opportunities such as a corporate tour at Deloitte, where she spoke with recruiters who gave her valuable career advice. Additionally, as a member of the Business Honors Program, Dawson was part of a committee to create a Casino Night charity event that raised more than $500 for the Wounded Warrior Foundation.

Dawson has always been passionate about community service. After her father conquered cancer, she participated in Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society several times. Through her sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, she volunteered at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K, handing out medals and pink ribbons to survivors who crossed the finish line. Dawson contributed to her sorority’s annual “Stepping for a Cure” philanthropy event that helped raise more than $20,000 for breast cancer education and awareness.

Beyond volunteer work, Dawson works as a student assistant for the International Financial Management Association. She maintains the organization’s social media accounts, along with member databases including college chapters. Recently, she assisted in preparation for the FMA Financial Leaders’ conference and has coded a newsletter and several web pages. She is looking forward to serving as the assistant recruitment chair for her sorority throughout the next year.
