The Smile Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading Happiness through acts of kindness. Our flagship program finds its home in the SPARK Clubs. SPARK stands for “Strengthening Positivity and Reinforcing Kindness” and these groups are formed by inspiring young people who want to make their schools and communities kinder and friendlier places to be.
Today, I want to introduce the 2022 – 2023 school year leadership team of one of the oldest SPARK clubs, Westminster College (WC). This is the seventh year for WC SPARK and I am so inspired by their kindness already!

This is my second year being the President of SPARK Club and I am super excited! I am a senior molecular biology major and psychology minor. I am also a three-year captain of the women's soccer team and a part of many other clubs on campus. I am most excited to continue to spread positivity on campus and make people's day!

This is my first year as the secretary for SPARK and I am very excited to take on a leadership role. I am a sophomore Biology/Pre-Med major and a Spanish minor.

One of my favorite things is crazy socks and it’s a guarantee that I would have a pair on if you ever see me on campus!
