Johanna Schulte,’15, pictured to the right: "As a liberal arts institution, Albion College provided me with a wide range of invaluable skills. Albion fostered my professional interests and passions, and gave me opportunities to really explore how I want to spend my adult life. There was never a shortage of interested alumni, faculty, and administrators who actively helped me find the right path."
Johanna graduated in May with majors in public policy and women's studies. She was a member of the Gerald R. Ford Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service as well as the Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program. Johanna was the president of the Student Senate and of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity International, and she served as a member of the Curriculum and Resources Committee and the Women's and Gender Studies Committee. She took her education further with her role as an intern and research assistant at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation in Grand Rapids, and as a legal intern at Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions at the Bluhm Legal Clinic in Chicago. With donors' help, Albion College provided Johanna with the tools for success which will put her well on her way toward a challenging and interesting career. In May she was named a recent graduate member of the College's Board of Trustees.
