Lilla Bea Granger, a senior from Montgomery, Alabama, served last summer as an intern with the Academy of Achievement in Washington, D.C., a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for young people to have contact with leaders from around the world.
Lilla Bea is a Brock Scholar, a program coordinated by Dr. Sara McCarty. Last month Dr. McCarty received a letter from the Program Director of the Academy of Achievement, Maggie Jones, in which Lilla Bea was celebrated for her “keen global perspective and understanding of the non-profit environment,” which “positioned her to represent the Academy team in an advanced capacity.” The staff members of the Academy of Achievement were so impressed with Lilla Bea’s work that they asked her to serve in October as the office coordinator for their International Achievement Summit in London.
The world is better because of Lilla Bea Granger.
