Tourism Cares is such a unique organization, and its vision for the preservation of our landmarks, the fostering of our young industry professionals, and uniting the industry with common goals fills a much-needed gap in a highly unrecognized field. I was so impressed with the planning, care and consideration given toward the Tourism Caring for America event I attended in Biloxi, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. Not only did Tourism Cares create a united force which could effect real change in the ravaged area, but we were also given the opportunity to meet the tourism industry professionals there who were facing a long recovery. Hearing their stories and showing how much we cared through our actions was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my career. In addition to my volunteer experience with Tourism Cares, I was also fortunate to receive their Liberty Travel Scholarship during my graduate studies at NYU in 2006. The scholarship was immensely helpful and I am continuously grateful for the recognition.
