VP of Scholarships

I am the incoming VP of Scholarship and I wish to make many more students within ALD aware of the several scholarship opportunities that are available to them. For so long a lot of people within ALD aren’t aware of the many scholarships ALD has to offer, and I would like to make several scholarships available to the ALD students. I am involved in several clubs and organizations here on campus. I enjoy watching movies, creating social media/youtube content, volunteering, and helping others any way I can!
