The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation is a nonprofit organization inspired by the life of Ryan Hawks, an extreme skier who died during a competition in 2011. Hawks was a 20045 graduate of South Burlington High School. According to the organization’s website, “The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation was established to extend Hawks’ humanness in an effort to enrich the lives of young adventurers and make the world a better place.”
Golden has a background in marketing, bookkeeping, and project management. The owner of Golden Consulting LLC, she holds a Certificate in Project Management from the University of Vermont and a B.A. from Clark University.
“I feel honored and excited to have this chance to contribute to the important work of the Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation,” said Golden. “The Adventure Scholarship gives a much-needed financial boost to dreamers all over the world, so they can build on their ambitions and talents. From their testimonials I can see the incredible impact this support, both financial and immaterial, is having on these individuals. The Decisions Program is challenging athletes, youths and educators to identify and live by their self-expressed core values. This gives them a foundation from which to thrive in all areas of their lives. This unique program guides these participants through this process and is something people of all ages and walks of life can benefit from!”
