Stokes Award For Outstanding Service To The IINSPIRE ALLIANCE
IINSPIRE LSAMP Alumni Committee (ILAC)
The ILAC makes us all proud to be associated with IINSPIRE LSAMP. In the face of the pandemic, they have risen above the challenges and shown exemplary leadership, professionalism, and grit. They have created and run a mentoring program for our students, developed a dynamic webpage, gathered alumni bios, initiated a fundraising campaign to support students in the pandemic, presented in LSMRCE webinars, and provided presentations and leadership at the national level through the LSMRCE Conference.
In addition, our ILAC alumni have stepped into planning this conference and helped us to shape and deliver our first virtual IINSPIRE LSAMP Conference. Several ILAC members served on committees, and, of course, they led sessions and “gave back” to IINSPIRE LSAMP.
