Sheri came to Drury with the goal of attending law school and is making that dream a reality by completing an internship with the Springfield Public Defender’s Office.

The writing major has given her an invaluable skill and a new career goal.

“Now that I am a senior, and I am able to look back on my accomplishments here," Sheri relates, "I can confidently say that coming to Drury was the absolute best thing I have done for me and my family.”
