"When I think of W&M I think of opportunity. W&M gave me the opportunity to grow as a person — academically and personally — more than I thought was possible. Since graduation it has been a life goal to provide the same opportunities for other Tribe members. A role on the Board would allow me to continue this goal, and at the same time bring the experiences I gained from leading the largest chapter in the nation to the Board."
