The David Eccles School of Business has several amazing programs available to willing students. One such program is Board Fellows which allows students to gain board room experience by sitting on the Board of a non-profit. I have had the honor of sitting on the Recycle Utah Board of Directors for a year now and it has been a great experience. I am constantly learning more about how boards properly operate and have been able to take the lead on numerous programs including business development and operations programs. I look forward to continuing to serve the board as needed.
