"I enjoyed serving on the Staff Advisory Committee and learned a lot about the College of FAES. Of course, I met many people from all parts of the College and worked with several on committees, giving us a sense of accomplishment. Touring different areas of the College and different campuses was definitely a plus and without serving on SAC, I probably would have never had the opportunity."
