Major: Exercise Science

"My PACT mentor Leighann DeMarco leads by example. She goes above and beyond what is expected of her, which has inspired me to do the same. She constantly puts others before herself and is always looking out for the best interest of her students. Leighann is proof that hard work pays off and has taught me to never give up."

Major: Criminal Justice

"Ashley Harris will always welcome you with open arms... Personally for me, she is very special because she is more than a mentor, she has been like a sister. A sister to whom I can go to with my problems and know that she will always be there for me, ready to listen, understand and guide me to the right decisions. Most importantly she helped me realize that giving up is not an option!"

Carlos Tobar ‘18

Major: English/ Education

"What makes Lauren Carbajal a great mentor is that she’s always willing to help everyone no matter how busy she is. She is always willing to help you and is always sending emails to inform you about important things that are happening in school. I am so lucky to have Lauren as my mentor!"
