On August 29th of 2016, I received a Congratulations email indicating my acceptance into the first national SERVE (Supporting, Expanding, and Recruiting Volunteer Excellence) cohort. It was a Monday and within the first few weeks of the semester at Tulsa Community College. In addition to telling my partner and family, I told one colleague and within about one week, my boss. Everyone was very happy for me, as I have been engaged with NASPA since 2006 through different Regions, Knowledge Communities, National/International events and the NASPA Foundation.
March flew by like a nor’easter! Many of us had the fantastic opportunity to experience high winds, snow, education, inspiration and friendships in Philadelphia at the NASPA annual conference this past month.
