I was grateful enough to serve as Kappa Kappa Gamma’s Philanthropy Director during the 2023 year. It was an incredible experience to work in uplifting The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) through fundraising with our events and educating people on what NAMI was and how it could help them!”

Urielle Laurent and Emily Schwartz [Chair and Vice Chair of the Boa rd of Trustees] are extremely dedicated, passionate, and wonderful people with incredible ideas. Their contributions to making FSU a better place should not go unnoticed. From starting the Student Foundation’s Philanthropy Banquet to opening Student Foundation Grant Requests and helping RSO’s further their missions – Emily and Urielle are amazing individuals and I am so thankful to have been recognized by them.”
