YOU WERE THERE!!!
The attendance at the 2011 ASPIRE opening meeting on Thursday, September 8th in Sharp Lab 130 was outstanding! Even though the meeting was moved at the last minute from Gore to Sharp, the ASPIRE community gathered in impressive numbers. More than 80 freshmen and returning students learned about ASPIRE student support services, scholarships, service activities and pre-professional development workshops. ASPIRE President Quindara Lazenbury and Secretary Huong Nguyen, led the session with back-up from Taria Pritchett, former ASPIRE president and Teresita Mariano, former ASPIRE secretary. Members shared ASPIRE experiences, and 32 additional students completed membership forms for the 2011-12 year.
