Retired Claims Manager, State Farm Insurance
I chose to be a Scholars Program Advisor because . . .
I want students to be their best and to have the best opportunity for success in college, and for them to realize they have advocates who will be there to advise, guide, encourage, and support them for four years and beyond.
The challenges of serving as an Advisor include . . .
remaining engaged with my Scholar given available time and the separation of distance, and appreciating that college and what it means to be a student have greatly changed from when I was in school.
The rewards of serving as an Advisor include . . .
seeing my Scholar progress toward completing college, have an exciting campus life, build lasting relationships, and become a mature, responsible, successful, and productive adult.
