Standing up for community governance
On choosing Marlboro College
I went to a high school where I was just a number. It was big—like thousands of people and I didn’t matter at all. I don’t think any of the administrators could pick me out of a lineup. So I knew I wanted a small school because I wanted somewhere where I would matter. As soon as I came to Marlboro, I felt at home. I felt like everyone cared about me and cared about what I thought. And you know, this is a place where individuals truly are important. That’s why I came here.
