Rachel Wilham

Rachel Wilham helped to create a community garden at the University of Illinois Springfield after coming up with the idea in an Introduction to Sustainability class. The garden will provide locally grown food to the campus community. Wilham led the effort to fundraise for the project and gain campus support. Following graduation, she plans to join the Peace Corps and participate in environmental work abroad.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
