Anna Book, a senior public health major from Charleston, has found community at South Carolina by leading the Homecoming Commission as its president. She hopes her legacy continues to allow future Homecoming leaders to also challenge themselves to become a symbol of unity.
"Homecoming is about bringing the community together to celebrate who we are. I was able to find people across campus who were invested in creating community and working hard to make four years here an experience to cherish forever. Looking back, every step of the way there was someone there to lift me up and encourage me to keep going. And now as a senior, I owe so much of my personal growth to the people in this department."
