Barrett Faculty and Staff Spotlight Seniors from all Four Barrett Campuses.
Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University is home to some of the most outstanding and award-winning students in the entire country, from Fulbright Scholarship winners to NCAA Post Grad student-athletes, Barrett students are the brightest and the best. The Barrett Senior Spotlight seeks to recognize those students who go above and beyond every single day without recognition, and truly make Barrett the “Gold Standard” among Honors Colleges. The Senior Spotlight students were nominated by faculty and staff for their achievements at their individual campuses.
Tooms plans on working as a pediatric critical care nurse and says of her Barrett experience “The most important thing I will take away from my Barrett experience are the skills I developed through the opportunities I seized through Barrett. Whether it be crafting an argument through the Human Event, experiencing new cultures through study abroad and GAC, or networking through all of the amazing connections I have made through research and volunteering I did through Barrett, the maturity and professionalism my Barrett experience has given me will cultivate my future.“
Eric goal is to attend medical school, become a doctor and help others. I know Eric will utilize his mentoring/teaching abilities in the medical profession to communicate with others, display compassion and understanding, and share his knowledge. His determination and natural academic ability will see him through the academic rigor of medical school and his personality and love of people will give him the heart necessary to persevere through difficult challenges that all doctors face.”
Upon leaving Barrett Frazier plans to attend medical school but will always remember his time at Barrett saying “Being a member of Barrett, The Honors College facilitates the formation of closer connections that will serve students in future careers as both support groups and critical, professional networks. I will forever cherish the friendships that I formed through the tight-knit community that Barrett provides for so many students”
McBroom stated that “Barrett has taught me that opportunity is out there, and if you have the initiative to grab those chances, then you can go so much farther than you ever dreamed.”
Hoover-Bennett plans to continue to research the effects of Autism on Native Americans. She says “There are so many things I enjoyed about Barrett. I think anything, I will always be grateful for the opportunity Barrett provided. Even though I am a stay at home mom, I was able to study abroad and have this amazing experience! The thesis was also a major take away. I am grateful for the opportunity to complete a thesis. I gained a better understanding of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and how it affects other Native American families.”
O’Connor plans on continuing his education pursuing a Master’s Degree in Social Work. O’Connor says "Barrett has motivated me to reach for the stars where all of my dreams and aspirations can be attained through hard work and dedication."
Mouton is grateful for her time at Barrett saying “The one thing I'll take away from the Barrett experience is how everyone I worked with and interacted with helped me become a more confident person. I came into Barrett questioning whether I belonged or if I was the right demographic, or if I was as smart as my very brilliant peers. I was afraid I had to pretend to be someone I wasn't to fit in. But Dr.Manninen, Dr. Gruber, Sasha Billbe and Dean Ramsey all personally invested in my experience and reassured me to always be myself and they all pushed me to be more confident in myself while helping me cultivate into a paraprofessional and a student leader. They all made me feel like I made feel Barrett West was my home. Not only did I learn hermeneutics, philosophy, mindfulness, and arts but I learned how to confidently navigate in a world even beyond Barrett without compromising who I am. I am very grateful for the caring and inclusive community that exist at Barrett West and I am very thankful for all of my peers and faculty that helped me grow during my college journey.”
