Climbing the steps of Capitol Hill was once a dreadful task but what I didn’t realize then is that those very steps lead me to the opportunity of a lifetime.

Having transferred into Sam Houston State University my sophomore year, I quickly found my place in this crazy, orange world.

It is hard to imagine where these past three years went, one minute you’re learning the ins and outs of campus and the next you are giving direction like you have lived here your whole life.

The knowledge that I have gained is not solely attributed to the curriculum of my degree plan but to the faculty and staff I have encountered while here at SHSU.

While every student has that one professor they would like to push off a cliff, I can honestly say that each and every one of my professors has given me a valuable piece of knowledge.

In my three years as a Bearkat I have found that the most unexpected people can teach you the most extraordinary things.

I would like to thank the women of the Delta Zeta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha for allowing me to realize that within my grasp lies the opportunity to learn those things that will ever enrich and ennoble my life.

Further more, I would like to give thanks to the National Broadcasting Society and the 2012-2013 Executive Council. I was privileged with the opportunity to serve as secretary and president for such a talented group of people.

With out the continuous love and support from my family and soul-mate my undergraduate career would not have been possible.

Finally, I would like to thank the staff of The Houstonian, as they have taught me more about the field of journalism in one year than I could have ever learned in a classroom.

And for the last time as an undergraduate student, EAT EM’ UP KATS!
