I want to serve the school as best in a leadership role as I possibly can. To do that, I will make sure the school’s commitment to General Education remains strong. I also will help the school grow with its new graduate program that has been established recently. Lastly, I will make sure that our undergraduate program remains strong as well. I want to see our students be satisfied with their decision to commit to this school. - See more at: http://sites.jmu.edu/harrisonconnect/2014/05/12/the-changing-of-the-guard-part-ii/#more-969
