Title: Clinical Research Coordinator/Clinical Research Advantage

Major at UCCS: Biology and Chemistry

Favorite CLC Memory: It is so difficult to choose one great memory from the thousands I experienced while in CLC and with CLC friends. One particular weekend stands out, though. My third year in the program I was able to serve as the Student Director of Scholar Development and work closely with the Director and other student leaders to plan and lead the Retreat at the beginning of the year. We spent three days in a relaxed environment filled with games, leadership excercises, and learning activities. While the Retreat is always a highlight, that particular year was so memorable because I was able to watch the training that CLC gave me be put to use to empower and engage other students.

Advice for CLC Scholars: College is a great time to figure out how you personally can balance responsibilities, school, friends, and family. It can be a struggle, but I encourage you to take advantage of the broad range of activities and experiences that CLC can offer. This is just one step in your life, so choose several things to get involved with that will be significant and diverse. Even if it doesn't have to do with your major, you can still learn alot!

Title: Executive Team Lead of Asset Projection, Target

Major at UCCS: Psychology Minor: Leadership Studies

Favorite CLC Memory: When I was preparing my speech for the 2012 student leader of the year ceremony. I was intimidated and nervous to stand in front of 1000 of my closest strangers. Each of my CLC peers practiced with me, read and edited my speech, and provided invaluable feedback. We learned a lot about each other along the way. I remember feeling accepted, valued, appreciated, and humbled to be among such inspiring leaders. Even now, those peers remain in my foundation that all others are compared to.

Advice for CLC Scholars: Demostrate courage and make mistakes now. Learn to fail now while you are surrounded by individuals that will challenge and develop you. They will teach you to process ambiguity and from that you will surpass your own limitations.

Title/Company:Tuned LLC

Major at UCCS: Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing

Favorite CLC Memory: I loved being able to go to the retreats and bond with everyone. It was so fun to instantly have a bunch of new friends when I moved to Colorado. I came from a military family and didn't know anyone when I moved here. CLC gave me a chance to meet some incredible people that have become my friends.

Advice for CLC Scholars: College goes by so quickly. You will miss it when you leave. If you give everything to college and CLC, you will receive more than you can imagine.

Title/Company: Assistant Women's Basketball Coach/ Colorado State University of Pueblo (CSUP)

Major: Finance Double Minor: International Business/Leadership Studies Master's: MBA-Corportate Training Emphasis- Colorado Christian University (CCU)

Favorite CLC Memory: Attending the 1st CLC International Experience to Italy with my fellow CLC scholars. I had the opportunity to explore another country and develop deeper friendships with the scholars that went on this journey. It was the best experience with lots of memories that I had with CLC

Advice for CLC Scholars: "Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus." Philippians 2:1-5

Major at UCCS: History/Communication Minor: Leadership

Favorite CLC Memory: It's very tough to zero in on one individual memory from my four years in CLC, what with all the myriad opportunities and wonderful experiences I had. I would have to say that my tenure as Student Director of Program Operations within the CLC Office for two years was my greatest accomplishment and fondest memory as far as making an impact is concerned. Making tough decisions, helping to run the program, organizing volunteers, managing the budget, and being directly involved in all of the ins and outs that make up a successful non-profit has paid it's dividends to me and has make me a much better person. Seeing how CLC works from the inside out gives one a much better idea of how wonderful the program is and how much important work our scholars do in their community and on campus.

Advice for CLC Scholars: Get involved in as many service projects and take advantage of as many opportunities you can. CLC offers scholars a chance to enhance their lives and the lives of so many people around you. By getting involved in a number of different areas, one can make a broader impact, and also find their own passion in life. Also, becoming a mentor to a younger scholar is paramount in my opinion.
