This is Spork’s 6th summer serving as a staff member and 13th summer at Camp Thurman! She will be a sophomore at the University of Arkansas (woo pig!) this upcoming year and is majoring in International Studies and minoring in Spanish. At Arkansas, she has enjoyed getting involved with her church and making friends through her sorority. Spork hopes to one day serve all God’s people working with international, humanitarian non-profit groups. Spork loves spending each summer at CT. Two of her favorite things are Roxburgh’s Ropes and skits. Her all-time favorite thing though is spending time with each of her campers and learning how unique they all are and seeing their talents and gifts throughout the week. When she is not at camp, she enjoys spending time with her puppy, Coco, and take photos of her friends and family. Spork cannot wait to see God’s grace work at CT this summer. She is so looking forward to spending time with God in prayer with her campers and with her fellow staff members!
