Alumni Inspiration

“I just wanted to reach out and thank you one last time for your encouraging words and help with my recommendation letter during my application season this past year. I was fortunate enough to get into several top programs, but ultimately decided that William and Mary best suits my future goals. Starting this August, I’ll be in Williamsburg studying Clinical Mental Health and Addictions Counseling! I’m incredibly excited to see where this takes me. Even more, thank you so much for taking a chance on me during an incredibly crazy COVID summer, as well as for teaching me so much. My time at KP really reminded me why I look forward to waking up every day to study psychology.” – AB
