    Being inducted was a huge personal achievement, and it helped me identify others who had the same focus and intentions I did. I've realized that membership is so much more than academic accolades.

    Michele Clark, Chapter President - University of Southern California
  • We are proud of our students' academic accomplishments and are excited to continue celebrating public service excellence.

    Amanda Olejarski, Chapter Advisor - Shippensburg University
  • Having PAA designation both on graduation day and on their transcripts allows our students to exit from Metropolitan Colelge of New York with good memories.
