"I joined ARCS because I strongly believe in the mission of the group and wanted to contribute to that mission. I also wanted to affiliate with the amazing group of women that are behind the success of ARCS Foundation Oregon. I had had ample opportunity to observe them in action (having attended the Scholar Luncheon nearly every year since 2005), and am a little embarrassed it took me so long to take the leap to becoming a member! I have greatly enjoyed my role as VP of Programs, and look forward to contributing to our group in other ways in the future."
