Student Quote

“FC is lucky to have you and your passion, excitement, and skills. You bring energy and direction to the work that you do on campus. You also make me smile often with your videos and cute pictures of Chester (puppy). Your unapologetic advocacy for marginalized people inspires me. I’m grateful for how you lead on campus and let your light shine.” — Riley Jones ’21
