And she’s not exaggerating.

She’s a teaching fellow.
And a resident assistant.
She studied abroad in Belize.
She participated in Emerging Leaders seminar.
And Leadership Circle.
She earned the highest levels of leadership and recognition through the Sophie Lanneau Leadership Program.
She’s a member of the Silver Shield leadership society.
And she’s been inducted into Sigma Tau Delta – the national English honor society.

“I have grown more than I ever expected,” she said of her Meredith experience. “I can’t emphasize enough how all of my experiences combined have had such a positive impact.”

Like any strong leader, Elizabeth recognizes the community behind her success.

“I owe so much to the Meredith faculty and staff,” she said. “One of the reasons I chose Meredith was for the support system, and it did not disappoint.”
