Transcript RElease

As a senior in college, I see the impact of being a Marker was far greater than I could have imagined. My teachers and classmates challenged and pushed me to be the most empathetic, smart, and empowered version of myself. I was surrounded every day by people who chose community over competition and loved beyond all differences. Because of Nerinx, I have been changed for good."
