I currently serve as the 2020-2021 President of the President's Leadership Class at Rogers State University. The President's Leadership Class and I have partnered with various local organizations in the Claremore area, striving to better our community. One of the most impactful events we did was the resource drive for the Memory Care Center, a nursing home facility that specializes in patients with Alzheimer's disease. We were able to collect items such as blankets, soaps, coats, and other items to give to the residents. I have also served as a Sunday school teacher at the Pryor First Free Will Baptist Church, weekly working and teaching kids from 3rd to 6th grade. I also was a volunteer intern at the Rogers County Courthouse where I would help run various criminal and civil dockets.
