Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to conserving the state’s wildlife and natural resources, welcomes its newest addition, Sharon Armstrong.
Armstrong will serve the Federation’s development department by supporting strategic fundraising campaigns, cultivating donors and assisting with database management.
“We are thrilled to have Sharon join the Federation,” said Kendall McCarter, chief development officer for the Federation. “Her attention to detail and knack for streamlining donor activities will strengthen the Federation’s ability to conserve Tennessee’s wildlife and wild places.”
Armstrong is a highly-organized professional with experience coordinating marketing for corporate and nonprofit organizations, organizing special events and executing diverse visual communications needs.
As a young girl, and later as a staff member of the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee, Armstrong was inspired by two particular phrases of the Girl Scout Law: “use resources wisely” and “make the world a better place”.
Her earliest memories of recycling began with the newspaper collection drives held by her elementary school. She continues the practice by weekly visits to her neighborhood recycling center.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to support the mission of the Federation as a tribute to my father, uncles, and cousins who enjoyed spending time together in Tennessee’s great outdoors,” said Armstrong.
Armstrong holds a bachelor of science in business administration, marketing major, from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and an associate of applied science in visual communications, graphic design concentration, from Nashville State Technical Institute.
