Meet the ENF Staff

Marcee Northey
Donor Services Manager

How long have you worked at the ENF?
I have worked at the ENF for just over seven years.

What projects are you/your department working on right now?
The Donor Services department is gearing up for the end of our fiscal year, which is just around the corner.

What’s your favorite part of working at the ENF?
My favorite part of my work with the ENF by far is speaking with Elks across the country. I love solving problems and speaking with them about what great things they are doing in their communities. I also really enjoy working with the Donor Services team. We work really hard but also enjoy our jobs.
 
Describe your average day at the ENF.
We say in the DS department that there is no average day, but we do have average weeks. As I mentioned earlier, communicating with Elks is part of that but also processing donations, updating records and reports, responding to requests, assisting the team with questions, and meeting with other departments comprise an average week here for me.

What are you looking forward to this year?
My husband and I purchased a house two years ago and this will be the first summer where we do not have a major fix-it project to do.  We built a deck last year and I’m looking forward to spending time outside enjoying it with family and friends—after this currently very difficult and snowy Chicago winter.

What’s one thing about you that might surprise people?
I’ve gone walleye fishing almost 40 summers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I don’t always catch a lot but usually have a great “The one that got away” story for the trip.

What TV show do you never miss?
I am embarrassed to say that I watch too much TV. Two of my favorite programs are Scandal and Parenthood, which are on at the same time!

Serving by the Blue Ridge Mountains

by Gabriella Haire 2015 Most Valuable Student Scholar
My name is Gabriella Haire and I am a junior studying biomedical engineering at the University of Minnesota. Beyond dreaming up medical innovations, I enjoy volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House, training for cross country ski races, and exploring new cities one ice cream shop at a time.

Following a typical track practice in March 2015, I received an atypical email. It was an invitation to the Elks Most Valuable Student Leadership Weekend and the promise of an Elks National Foundation scholarship. I was elated as I celebrated in the locker room, but I didn’t fully realize how that email and the Leadership Weekend were just the beginning of my relationship with the Elks.
After a physics lecture in November 2015, I received an email confirming my acceptance to the Winter Elks Scholar Service Trip in Oakland, California. I was eager to connect with Elks scholars for a whole week, rather than just a weekend. As it turned out, a week w…

What I'll Remember Most

by Cullen Edens
2016 Most Valuable Student Scholar Cullen, along with 19 other scholars, came together to serve the San Antonio community in the name of the Elks from June 26 to June 29. These 20 scholars then joined 130 of their fellow scholars for the 150 for 150 Service and Celebration Weekend, where all 150 scholars worked together to serve the city of San Antonio from June 29 through July 2. 



My name is Cullen Edens and I am a junior at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma where I am majoring in Accounting. When I was selected as an Elks Most Valuable Student scholar, I simply thought I would collect my award and move on with my college education. I had no idea the impact that the Elks National Foundation would have on my life.
In late June, I traveled to San Antonio not knowing that this service trip would transform the way I viewed the communities around me. Arriving at Trinity University, I met 19 other Elks scholars from across the country from Maine to California. We instan…

Show Me the Heat

by Billy Donnelly Youth Programs Associate
While low temperatures afflict most of the United States in January and February, things are really starting to heat up for the Hoop Shoot. In gyms all across the country, Hoop Shoot contestants have been competing in state contests--another stop on the road to Chicago.
This year I had the privilege of attending the Missouri State Hoop Shoot contest, just outside of St. Louis. Randy Eaton has been the Show-Me State’s Director for more than 30 years, but after all that time, you can tell he has not lost his fire and passion for the program.
I left a looming snow storm in Chicago, happily heading south to help out with Randy’s event. It didn’t take long after my arrival before we could start to get to work. The hotel was practically ready to go—a Holiday Inn with an arcade and a large indoor pool meant that the 48 best free-throw shooters in Missouri weren’t going to have to go far to have some fun.
Randy took me to go help set up for the Awar…
