Most impactful professor at HPU: “Dr. Pamela Palmer has been my role model throughout my four years at High Point. She encouraged me to network with community leaders, pursue my dreams and to never aim too low.”
Most impactful moment at HPU: “The moment that had the greatest impact on me was during my junior year when presenting my Senior Seminar. Dr. Pamela Palmer presented me with Junior of Year within the Nonprofit Management and Leadership Program. I never realized how much I had truly accomplished during my years here, but when she listed off my accomplishments, I realized that I had the potential to be an asset to the community, and that I had definitely been an asset to the program at HPU.”
