Thank you: I would like to thank all of the people that taught me that true service is fueled by passion. Several UM faculty and staff, including Vicki Watson, Dan Spencer and Lila Fishman, encouraged me to engage with my community and exemplified their teachings through their actions. I would also like to thank leaders of local organizations who emphasized to me the importance of building community through connection to our local lands, including Zack Porter, Joshua Lisbon and Coby Gierke.
