Sloan Maas ’18 is the Eagles Autism Foundation Program Coordinator.
“WFS taught me the importance of time management and to take risks in the classroom. I also grew as a student and as an individual during my time at Friends due to the immense amount of support from my teachers, coaches, and peers.”
Sloan Maas ’18 graduated from Dickinson College in 2022 with her degree in International Business and Management. She kept herself busy during her time in Carlisle as she was a member of the women’s soccer team, served as an Admissions Ambassador, and was the VP of Marketing, Planning, and Events for the Panhellenic Council. Sloan also received the 2021 Leadership in Adversity Award, given to individuals who helped uplift various members of the Dickinson College community.
In June 2022, Sloan began working for the Eagles Autism Foundation, a non-profit organization of the Philadelphia Eagles. In her role as a Seasonal Associate, Sloan helps coordinate their fundraising events, works with their EAC sponsors and donors, helps support their 13 neurodiverse game day staff, oversees the Sensory Room at the stadium, and helps with all general and merchandise operations. Sloan loves her work because it combines her passion for sports and non-profit work. She states, “Professional sports teams have the ability to make a difference in their community and the impact that the Eagles Autism Foundation has made is nothing short of incredible. We are able to meet families where they are by providing resources such as vaccination clinics, a sensory friendly experience at every event at Lincoln Financial Field, and by funding innovative autism research and care programs.”
Prior to her time at Dickinson, Sloan was a WFS student. At Friends, Sloan was an All-State soccer player and served on LINK crew and the Spirit Committee. Her advice to the class of 2023? “Never settle and remember, you are the biggest advocate for yourself. Also, make sure to take advantage of all the resources that WFS offers and do not take a single day for granted; high school goes by fast, but everything following feels as if it goes by even faster.”
When Kaylea Ann Donaghy, age 3, walked into Wilmington Friends Lower School in January, 2021, she was not aware that she may well be the ninth generation and 38th member of her family to attend or be involved with the oldest school in Delaware.
