"I love having the opportunity to stay connected and involved with Avila even after graduating. Being a part of the Alumni Board has allowed me to watch and be a part of Avila as it continues to explode with growth. I am privileged to have watched Avila transform over the last 8 years and am excited to see what the future has in store."
