Alpha Omicron Pi President: Valerie Echevarria Mandez
"My name is Valerie Echevarria Mandez; I am a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education at ASPU. I am from Puerto Rico, but my dad was in the military so we moved around and Clarskville was on of those places. I graduated from West Creek, so I knew a few people coming to Austin Peay but still not many. Joining this sisterhood gave me a home away from home and lifelong friendships that have given me more than I could have ever imagined. It is an honor to get to be part of this incredible organization made up of such diverse, genuine, and ambitious young women. We strive to inspire ambitiion within each of our members so that she may become the very best version of herself."
