Kira Lambert is a recent graduate from James Madison University, earning degrees in Sociology and Communication Studies in the spring of 2021. While in undergrad, Kira worked to found TORCH, JMU's only student-led advocacy initiative focused squarely on the needs of first-generation and low-income (FGLI) college students at the university. As a first-generation college student herself, Kira is thrilled to be able to continue her work with the FGLI students on campus and with the many Valley Scholars students who will someday be at JMU themselves. 

When she's not at work, Kira enjoys visiting local restaurants, spending time with friends, and trying to catch up on all the TV shows her students recommend to her. Hailing from Southwest Virginia, Kira cherishes Harrisonburg's beautiful landscape which reminds her of home.
