Annyika CorbettAlumni Association Board of Directors Representative
Thank you for taking the time to read this! As you all know, we live in a very small and close-knit community. Lewis & Clark as well as Portland and the larger Pacific Northwest legal communities function on personal relationships that foster supportive professional bonds. It has been great to begin to get to know many of you over the last months and to form what I know will be lifelong friendships! This past year I had the privilege to work with the SBA as a class representative as well as the honor of having a mentor who is very involved on our Alumni Association Board. Through both of these experiences I have come to appreciate the important role that Lewis & Clark alums play in our lives as students and the support that they have to offer as we begin to develop as professionals. As a representative to the Alumni Association Board I would be dedicated to developing this vital relationship between our alumni and student body. We are lucky to have a very passionate Alumni Association, and I would love the opportunity to work with the Board to increase the student accessibility to these outstanding resources!
While Career Services does a fantastic job of hosting alumni networking events, I would hope to create a more accessible relationship between the student body and the Alumni Board by planning events where the Board would have the opportunity to interact directly with students, hear what you have to say, and get even more excited about working with us. I will work to make sure that the student body is kept up to date on the issues that come before the Board, and I will do my best to get feedback from all of you and to articulate your concerns and ideas to the Board.
