Colleen’s Impact:
“Being an inaugural recipient meant that I was immediately given the opportunities and inspiration to share Colleen’s legacy with every group of children I would meet during my college career and beyond. It is also exciting to be a part of a group of future teachers who share a similar perspective and inspiration, and a focus on kindness and positivity that we will all share with our students.”
