Sandi came back to school after an 11year break, she thought she was too old to return but she soon found out that was not the case. After she returned she realized there is so much to learn outside of your degree program.
Sandi was just selected to be a part of the Diversity Board as the new community chair. She will be working with resources in the community to help educate students in different cultures and lifestyles. Right now she is building a relationship between Weber State and a nonprofit group called Holding Out Help, a polygamy rescue group. She is hoping Weber State can become a major resource for those that are hoping to start a new life outside of polygamy.
“My favorite thing about Weber State is how many programs they have available to the students”
