How long have you been an alumni member?

I have been an alumni member for 6 years now.

 

What is your favorite thing about the alumni?

My favorite thing about being an alumni member is the fact that I have had some of my favorite memories of my life with them. They have always been there for me when I needed them. Some of them have become my family and I have no idea what I would do without them.

What is your favorite memory about being an alumni?

This is really tough, but also easy at the same time. It was Fall State 2018 and I was in a wheel chair, after a really bad car accident. It was the day of the award ceremony and they were giving out the alumni recognition gifts. I remember, after almost a month of not being able to put any weight on my foot, walking in front of the room to grab my gift, with some assistance from a fellow alumni. That conference was one of the most difficult and most challenging conferences I have ever attended, but it was the most rewarding conference by far. It is the conference that reminds me why I come back every single year.
