AGS is filled with opportunity and is forever progressive. It has given me the greatest opportunity to expand my abilities as a student leader outside the classroom and I am confident that AGS will do the same for you too. My most memorable AGS moment would have to be at our last membership social when I made more friends with other AGS members and had free food and a full day of fun! My goals this semester include reaching out to the quality of membership and excavating their interests towards volunteerism and AGS activities. Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society involves giving back to society by various means - your involvement is what makes us an honor society. I look forward to befriending all of you and seeing you at all our events. This semester, Be recognized as AGS: Excellence, Knowledge, Wisdom. "I AM AGS!"  back to the top?

Major: Business/Communication
Most Memorable AΓΣ Experience: My most memorable AGS events would have to be the PCC flea markets, because a lot of AGS members normally show up and you get to know them individually.

I just want to let you all know that I am a very easy going and friendly person who loves to get to know people, especially people involved in AGS. So feel free to approach me if you want to talk about anything; it does not have to be AGS related. I'm excited about starting the spring semester, and look forward to developing a rapport/friendship with a lot of you.  back to the top?
