A big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to PC ’09 member Abby White who has just been named a director for the 2012-2013 Abbott Family Leadership Conference!
For those of you who haven’t heard of AFLC before: Abbott has been a program of the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M since 1995. Each year 70 students go through a selective application and interview process and are chosen as delegates to attend one of the two the Abbott conferences. While at the conference, students are challenged to examine and define their personal values, applying what they learn about themselves throughout their time at Texas A&M as well as later on in life, no matter the career field they intend to pursue.
Abby herself was involved with Abbott last year as a delegate to the San Antonio conference. She says of her experience, “I would definitely characterize my experience as life changing. It was so encouraging and yet humbling at the same time to be surrounded by professionals who are very successful, but have continued to hold strong to their morals in a world that often sees success and ethics as opposing forces.” Abby’s time at Abbott sparked in her a passion to continue to be involved with the conference. As a director, she will have the chance to share what she has learned, giving back to future delegates by helping them have an experience like her own. We are so proud of you Abby!
