OUR TEAM

We're so excited for you to meet our team! 
Our team is made up of a bunch of awesome people with a passion for hazing prevention. 
Don't hesitate to reach out if you have a question or want to get involved!
Rae Ann Gruver 

Co-Founder, Speaker, Co-President 

raeann@maxgruverfoundation.com

As Max's mother, Rae Ann truly feels a passion and duty to share her son's story, and do whatever she can to ensure no other family would go through what she has. Rae Ann had a wonderful experience as an Alpha Delta Pi sister, and wishes nothing but the best for all who join Greek Life. When Rae isn't advocating for hazing prevention, you can catch her cheering on the Clemson Tigers or spending time with family and friends!
