In the fall of 2005, I was in a bad place for a high school student. I was rambunctious, didn’t care much for school, and didn’t make it easy on my teachers. Mrs Person was one of only 4 teachers at my school who believed in me and saw that I could become something more. Her encouragement followed me through a tumultuous senior year to junior college and finally, to the university level. Without amazing instructors such as Stephanie, many students such as myself would have been lost.

I loved the time we went outside of Nashville to a conference. It was Stephanie, Jamie, and me. We had a great time together.

New York was my favorite! I had a room with Stephanie and Ashley. It was such a great time, and she was such a great leader and organizer!
