Being VP of Turner Ambassadors
As Vice President of the Darwin T. Turner Ambassadors, I had many responsibilities, including planning a retreat and running the biweekly meetings. I communicated with the president of Ambassadors, as well as the secretary and the heads of the committees. The Ambassadors worked together to plan out the Turner Olympics, our biggest social event of the year! The Olympics went well and ended in a fun game of Family Feud! I loved having the opportunity to work more closely with my fellow ambassadors and leading in group designed to promote the Darwin T. Turner Scholarship and help transition first year Turners to college! At the End of the Year Banquet for Tuner, I received a medal for Junior Class Highest GPA, a medal for Dean's List, a plaque for Excellence in Leadership, and an Award of Appreciation!
Being Event Chair for CECH Ambassadors
As Event Chair for CECH Ambassadors, I posted events to the group schedule and made sure there were the required number of volunteers available for each event. I also did some work within the office of CECH, such as creating packets for perspective students and sending letters to students who visited UC. As a CECH Ambassador, I had to opportunity to talk to perspective and incoming students and their families about my experiences as UC and why I chose to come to UC. I very much enjoyed speaking with parents to help them with their concerns for their child, as my parents were in the same position when I first began my college search!
Data Collecting for Research
I and three other fellow data collectors worked with Dr. Sally Moomaw in her research into preschool mathematics. We consulted with Dr. Moomaw about the math game's design and the script for our interactions with the preschoolers as we directed them in the game. I was fascinated by seeing the development of the research and loved being about to work with preschoolers as a way of collecting data. I cannot wait to see the results of the research and any implications that may come from it.
