My name is Melissa Wood-Walsh, and I am the President of our SAC team. I am a single mother of two, and currently in my second year of the business program. I chose to be a part of SAC because I want to create an atmosphere that all students feel accepted and appreciated for their unique qualities. I believe it is important to utilize all their different characteristics to build a stronger and more diverse learning community at our institution. To be a positive influence, it is vital to lead by demonstration and teach others that the tribulations you go through during your educational journey will make you wiser and stronger. As a result, you will become more successful after graduation. I promise to be your light while you walk through the darkness until you reach the end of your journey.
