Why did you choose CPHS and what benefits do you believe you gained from attending Campbell? Did you connect with the “Campbell family”?
I chose to attend CPHS because of the Christian and family values. CPHS showed me how to truly be a servant leader in my community, and serving others has continued to strengthen my faith over the years. While at CPHS, I was able to build relationships that continue to flourish. It is my belief that building relationships with people is the foundation of any successful career.
At Campbell we believe in purposeful lives and meaningful service. What legacy do you hope to leave?
I want to leave a legacy of love for people. When we give love to our fellow man, our Christ-like attitude is demonstrated in our actions. When it is all said and done, I want people to remember how I devoted my life to caring for all of God’s people. I have dedicated my career to creating services and opportunities that will uplift all people.
Why should prospective students choose Campbell over other graduate and professional schools?
Prospective students should choose Campbell over other schools because Campbell treats every student like family, and this family grows with each new class. Campbell creates lifelong relationships that grow and develop beyond the walls of the classrooms. Campbell did not just look at my test scores for entrance into the Pharmacy program, but they looked at me holistically. They were able to see my strengths and capabilities outside the parameters of an exam. Campbell does a wonderful job of taking people from various cultures and backgrounds and instilling fundamental values of success.
