Student Leadership

President, Nicole Scherrer

Why did you decide to pursue a leadership position at CVM? 

Last year, I decided to pursue a leadership position within Student Government as a Student Representative because I wanted to share the perspectives of the inaugural class in our new program. During the 2020-2021 school year, I felt like I played an active role in helping the CVM make improvements that benefitted my cohort, so I am very happy that I get to continue to do that for both the Class of 2023 and the Class of 2024.
