Being a part of a family that I've met and only known for less than 3 days is indeed a blessing and miraculous. We all are here during the conference with the same mission to see the legacy of what Mortar Board was created to be impact our lives and start a chain reaction on our campus communities. The conference is the spark to the year ahead of flame for all of our chapters! It is great to know on your path to greatness, you've got 40 plus more people beside you aiming for similar goals/pursuits.
