HALEY ALVAREZ H aley Alvarez, a 2015 graduate, talks about her support of Virginia Athletics, "I arrived on Grounds in the Fall of 2011 and had a passion for baseball. I sought out Coach O'Connor and received a position on the baseball team staff. He was supportive of my aspirations and entrusted me with increased responsibilities during my time with the team. It was an incredible four-year internship that culminated in a College World Series Championship. e encouragement I received from Coach O'Connor, the staff and the players launched my dream career in Major League Baseball." Haley is currently a baseball operations intern in the Office of the Commissioner for Major League Baseball. Haley believes Virginia Athlet- ics provides the opportunity for individuals to grow and achieve goals. By joining the VAF, donors provide this opportunity for 650 student-athletes who attend the University of Virgin- ia and pursue their academic and athletics endeavors. When you make a donation to the Virginia Athletics Foundation, you support every aspect of a student-athlete's experi- ence at the University of Virginia, from the mo- ment they are recruited to the day they walk the Lawn for final exercises. Your investment contin- ues long aer graduation, providing career oppor- tunities because of the degrees earned from the University of Virginia. I donate to VAF to thank those who supported my devel- opment and to provide other students the opportunity to grow and develop as they pursue a career in sports, whether on or off the field."
