Pricilla Gallogly, W&A’s Marketing Coordinator, has spent her career in sales and marketing, event planning, human relations, and project management. From managing 30+ client accounts to overseeing 350+ employees, Pricilla has never shied away from a challenge. In fact, the bigger the better! Former co-workers describe her as creative and detailed in everything she does, and a true professional who adds value to any corporate team. Perhaps one of Pricilla’s most satisfying achievements was when she assisted with the successful event planning of the 2007 “GA Missing Children’s Day” in Decatur that drew nearly 5,000 attendees. But then, charitable causes and community involvement have always been her passion…children, the environment, Salvation Army, D.A.R.E, Toys for Tots, Susan G. Komen Society, and she’s just getting started!
Pricilla brings hard work, serious passion, energy, and positivity to any endeavor, and that was evident in her W&A Employee Charity-athon effort this past summer. Pricilla campaigned to raise funds for Food 2 Kids, a program of the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia that provides weekend meal bags to over 1,500 students per week identified as chronically hungry. These bags contain six meals and healthy snacks and are delivered by volunteers directly to students at school.
Pricilla grew up in a family that instilled the importance of helping others, and she understands firsthand the value of programs such as these: “I have raised my oldest child in the local schools, and I know how important this program is for many of our community’s families. A hungry child can’t learn, and a child who can’t learn is going to struggle to succeed.”
Pricilla recruited fellow W&A employees to make baked goods and on July 31st spearheaded a bake sale in W&A’s office complex that raised $554. That amount was then matched by W&A’s corporate partner, Grahl Construction, as part of an Employee Charity Challenge, funding 960 meals – enough to feed 4 kids for an entire school year.
