What is your proudest accomplishment?

During my senior year at LaGrange College, I was awarded an institutional undergraduate research award for my senior capstone “Capital Punishment in the United States: Analyzing Deterrence and Cost-Effectiveness of the Death Penalty.”

What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?

My most meaningful service experience in college occurred when I studied abroad in El Salvador and Costa Rica. I was able to assist with building efforts on a school and a church. The lives that will be affected by the presence of a church or a school are immeasurable. I returned to the United States with a more open mind and a more thorough understanding of my own culture.
