When Scott and Julia Starkey donated Aware Awake Alive to Cal Poly, it was our top priority to get student involved and provide Learn By Doing internships.
Lizzie and Emilie were the VERY FIRST to join our student team! Now in their last quarter at Cal Poly, we can’t imagine what things would have been like without them. These two played critical roles in ensuring the Aware Awake Alive mission continued to thrive as WITH US was being established. Their experience as Peer Educators with Campus Health & Wellbeing, their knowledge of alcohol and other drug misuse issues, and their passion to spread the Aware Awake Alive message and Carson’s story made them such an inspiring duo to have on our team. They have helped create new awareness and education materials, represented our organization at national conferences, hosted exhibits and presentations, cultivated campus relationships with student organizations, faculty and staff, and have played such an important role in planning and hosting the Mustang Mile event the past few years (p.s. This year’s event is happening on May 30th!)
We are so grateful to them for the impact they’ve had on our organization and sharing our mission and message with campuses across the county. And we are grateful to our donors that made these internships possible.
Help us thank Lizzie and Emilie for their above and beyond contributions to raising awareness and saving lives!
