"The Leadership Fellows Program has been my favorite and most meaningful experience here at Eastern. LFP has given me the opportunity to better my leadership skills while developing lifelong community. It has helped me use my God given passions and talents to create and lead the Operation Net group on campus. Operation Net is an organization that raises awareness and money for the issue of malaria and provides and distributes mosquito nets for the nations of Uganda and Haiti. LFP has been a highlight of my college experience and is an amazing program." - Kali Fairchild, Class of 2013
