Clarion University has wonderful faculty and staff that are encouraging and supportive. My life changed when I met Kelly Ryan, assistant director for the Center for Leadership and Involvement. Kelly is the advisor to the organization, the Advisory Board for Leadership and Engagement (ABLE). She encouraged me to join and it has been the best decision I've made so far. I've worked my way up from a general member to VP of Finance and now I'm the President of ABLE. This organization, along with our lovely advisor, has given me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and get involved with the campus and community.
