Assistant Director of Advancement
Institute of Agriculture

A history buff, Evan, a political science graduate of UT Knoxville, once dreamed of being a politician. Raised in Pulaski, Tenn., Evan serves as an advisor to his fraternity, Alpha Gamma Rho, and he enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors.

When I grew up I wanted to be . . .

a politician.

If I was gifted with a secret power it would be . . .

mind reading.

My job is . . .

to help educate donors about current gift opportunities while looking ahead at the legacy they wish to leave.

To understand what I do, you must understand . . .

the value of estate planning for peace of mind that heirs will be taken care of and philanthropic goals will be attained.

I advance the mission of the university by . . .

bringing joy to those who want to give and want a secure financial future for themselves and their loved ones.

My life mantra is . . .

“There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.” —Ronald Reagan

My theme song is . . .

“Dancing in the Moonlight” by King Harvest.

I learned the meaning of giving from . . .

my family. It was further enhanced by the donors that I have had the privilege to work with at UTIA.

Few know that I . . .

am a huge history buff.
