Being a part of the McConnell Scholars Program is one of the greatest honors I've ever dreamed possible. The current scholars are known to be exceptional students around campus for their ability to carry on the center's legacy of leadership, scholarship, and service. I am beyond thankful to be a part of the class of 2027. Most of all, I am excited to be enriched in all the opportunities I would not be afforded elsewhere.
