Q: What is the Honors Program to you?
A: The Honors Program to me is a representation of the best that Emory & Henry has to offer its students. The community experience is both motivating and encouraging and helps to bring out the best of those involved. To me, the Honors Program has been essential to my experience at E&H, and I don’t think I would have come here without it.
Q: How would you describe the character of the Honors Program?
A: The character of the Honors Program is one of increasing excellence, whether that comes in the form of constantly tweaking the requirements in order to best accommodate the students it serves, or connecting students to scholarships and conferences that help them succeed.
Q: What advice would you give to First Year Honors Scholars?
A: Leave your ego at the door and accept that other individuals may know more on certain subjects and that is okay. A large part of your first year will be learning that you don’t know as much as you thought you did and that will make you a better student and person.
Q: What is one of your most significant experiences at E&H?
A: One of my most significant experiences at Emory & Henry was when I got to take a trip to Greece with my closest friends in the Honors Program and the previous head of the Honors Program, Dr. Joe Lane. Getting to experience such an incredible country with the individuals I live and work with daily was such a unique and incredible experience that would not have been possible without Emory & Henry or the Honors Program.
