Nichola Evans has been a valuable member of the TPF team since 2020. During Nic's time with TPF she spearheaded the recent prospectus, organized all meetings and minutes, and served as the board's liason to the community. Recently Nic was helping run the Marketing and Sponsorship Committees, and she kept the community up to date with her articles on the TPF Blog.
Truly, Nic contributed more to the community than can be listed in one blog post. We will miss her dearly.
