Chandler Stout '15 discusses her experience as a Sport Management Major at the College of Education and Human Development. Chandler has been heavily involved in student organizations such as Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority, Freshman Leaders in Progress, Conference on Student Government Association Committee, Big Event, Relay for Life-Aggieland and Fish Camp. She also interned with Learfield Sports in 2012. Her academic achievments and involvement in extracurricular activities have led her to receive the Lechner Scholarship, the Hans Brinner Scholarship and the Read Scholarship.
Recent special education graduate Morgan Baker ’12 knows the value of her college education and she wants to shout it from the rooftops.
Well, maybe not literally, but Morgan did spend the last two years of her undergraduate degree mentoring local Bryan High School students on the importance of a postsecondary education.
Laura Dean-Mooney ’82 never imagined the positive impact she would have on thousands of lives.

“As national president, I am the face of MADD,” she says. “I am the victim/survivor that the public sees.”
