“The most exciting part is that it is going to be a challenge because we have gained a lot of new members and I would like to see how good my leadership skills are,” says President Deja Barber, a senior education major.
Before graduating in May, she has some plans for what she would like Gamma Sigma Sigma to accomplish.
“I would like us to try to help at least three different community organizations so we can grow our community involvement,” Barber says.
