Favorite WSU experience
A formal evening at The Museum of Flight in Seattle to receive the President’s Civic Leadership Award from Washington Campus Compact was one of Medeiros’ most memorable experiences during her time at WSU. She was recognized for efforts to reduce food insecurity in Whitman County and met other college students focused on civic engagement in their communities. “It was great to talk with other students about the different kinds of service projects they were working on all across the state,” she said. It was also a chance for Medeiros and her mom to spend some time together exploring Seattle.
Medeiros will begin working as a planning aide for the City of Pullman after graduation. In the future, she plans to attend graduate school for food systems. Through graduate work, she hopes to work with food pantries in rural areas to improve access to food nutrition.
