SEPTEMBER - Student Leader of the Month

MAI-LING FRANCIS

Junior

English major

Flashguide, PLTC Trainer, Student Success Leader, Student Success Leader Intern

Her nominator said this about Mai: “Mai is a very outgoing leader on and off campus, she uses her platforms to speak out about injustices both in Kent and around the world. She also is a commuter student with a job but still has a large presence on campus helping introduce new students as well as helping returning students as well. Mai is nonjudgmental so anyone feels comfortable going to her for help, and she truly cares about everyone at this university and shows it through all she does. She has also grown so much through her leadership experiences and I can see how much she loves Kent State, and everyone connected to it.
