What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?: During my "Paint the City Red" Community Service Day during Homecoming I was able to create several volunteer opportunities all over Winston-Salem, NC . I had over 160 student volunteers. We mentored kids at different elementary schools, fed the homeless at the Samaritan Ministries, cleaned up the streets, built shelters for Winston-Salem Rescue Mission, and stocked food for Second Harvest Food Bank. It was heart warming to give back to the community because it gives so much to the University.
