Hi! My name is Elizabeth Deneff, and I am going to be a senior this year. This is going to be my second year on the GBB board. I was on the GBB board last year, and I loved it. My favorite part of Go Beyond Barrington was the events. We came together as a club to host school-wide events in order to raise money for our chosen charity, and it was such an amazing experience to be able to see the effect. I am in Go Beyond Barrington because I love making a difference in people’s lives, and I am so excited to be able to help. I am most excited for our fundraisers, connecting with our charity (or strengthening our relationship with our current one), and coming together as a board.
