Myself and the President of Michigan State University ACDA student chapter, Jessica Glaser, met Heather Buchanan (standing in for Dr. Amanda Quist) backstage at Abravanel hall. Dr. Buchanan then presented our awards on stage with our own chapters cheering us on in the audience! Following this, we ran over to the Tabernacle, and had the award ceremony there as well!
It was so overwhelming and wonderful to receive such an incredible amount of support and love from the ACDA community. Thank you so much to the Ithaca college community, our professors and peers who support us, Dr. Derrick Fox, and especially our advisor Dr. Janet Galván.
