Leadership lived: Audrey LeVault

Audrey LeVault says being a resident assistant (RA) at the University of Illinois Springfield is teaching her valuable leadership skills and preparing her for a future career in social work. LeVault is a member of the Capital Scholars Honors Program, the Social Work Club and is on the Christian Student Fellowship leadership team. As an RA, she often comes across challenging situations, where corrective action is required, but believes lessons can be learned from a second chance. Following graduation from UIS, she plans to earn her master’s degree in social work with a focus on either school social work or children and family services.
