Fun Fact About You: I was born and raised in New Orleans. Even though Paul and I have moved our family all over the United States, you can’t take the N’awlins out of me! Geaux Saints!
Favorite Part About Volunteering on this Committee: Really it is the people! I have gotten to meet so many Ensworth parents I would have never met had I not been involved in Tiger Night.

# of Years Served on the PA Board and/or Committee: Can you believe this is my first year?!
Thing You’re Most Excited About for the Big Night: The Live Auction! I cannot wait to see Matt Rogers (our fabulous auctioneer) in action! We have some truly unique items this year to offer to the Ensworth community. Get your paddles ready!

Ansley Hampton (Justin)
Fun Fact About You: While in my first job out of college, I was sitting at my desk and heard the song “I Hope You Dance” and realized I wasn’t “dancing”...I quit my job and flew to Australia to backpack for 4 months by myself! My family thought I was crazy.
Favorite Part About Volunteering on this Committee: My co-chairs - I cannot imagine not being friends with them, and we may have never have crossed paths otherwise. I also love our weekly meetings on campus and seeing students walking around.
# of Years Served on the PA Board and/or Committee: This is my first PA job - go big or go home!
Fill in the Blank, “You won’t want to miss the…. at Tiger Night!: I am SO excited for everyone to be together and have such a fun time as our E community. We all deserve this after the last two years. And, of course, the puppy!
Ashley Lane (Matt)
Will (2nd), Annie (6th), Gracie (10th)
Fun Fact About You: I grew up in a small town in rural Mississippi and graduated highschool with a class of 40 people! I love the city, but the night sky still shines brighter between the pines in Mississippi.
Favorite Part About Volunteering on this Committee: The Process! I have truly enjoyed the day in and day out of meetings with people I otherwise would not have met, and I have probably developed lifelong friendships with my co-chairs. We will definitely need (and enjoy!) a vacation together after February.
# Years Served on PA: This might be my third year, but who’s counting!? I have worked with the Sunshine Committee and the Super Saturday committee in the past.
Thing You’re Most Excited About for the Big Night: DANCING! I love good music and dancing always makes me feel much younger than I actually am. However, I am quickly able to remember my age the next day. Ouch!
Fill in the Blank, “You won’t want to miss the…. at Tiger Night!: Well, if you love golf and you love the Low Country and marshes of South Caroline then you will not want to miss an opportunity to play a round of golf with Matt Lane at Secession Golf Course.
