Meet The Callers

Our Phonathon 2018 theme is SUPERHEROES. The callers are split into to two teams representing the Marvel Comics and DC Comics universes, The Avengers and The Justice League. Their mission is simple, to reach their team goal by the end of calling sessions. Help our heroes reach their goals for Phonathon 2018!
