I want to empower students to become the best that they can.
Quote by: Brandon McKinnedy, Aspiring Educator
Six aspiring educator members from SC State University pose for a photo. Three student members are in the front, all are smiling, and the student in the right corner is flashing a peace sign. There are three students in the back row, also smiling, with the person to the furthest right flashing a peace sign. In the background, there are blue and pink neon lights and the image of The SCEA logo in white is just barely visible in the spaces between people.

You Belong!
