  • “A little over a year ago, in New Orleans at Boot Camp, I made you a promise that within 2 years I would get somewhere: either make it over to academics and pursue certification, or continue on my path to leadership. Well, I did both. In a few months, I will join faculty at WVU, and I will continue pursuing leadership skills and engagement at several levels. The lesson I learned: what you do and say, and the way you do it and say it, makes you stand out and open up new paths. My investment in leadership skills and training paid out very quickly. Your boot camp was an important and fruitful element of that investment.”  –Dr. Shafric Sraj
