Sydney’s responsibilities include raising funds for the Foundation and managing them – both of which are crucial to the Foundation’s purpose and mission.

Sydney grew up in South Carolina and graduated from Presbyterian College in 2017, with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in history. In 2021, she earned a master’s degree in public service and administration, graduating summa cum laude from the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
