Hometown: Chicago, IL
Future Plans: Become a medical researcher
Janell Mathus is thankful for the mentors she had growing up. Now, the biology major is giving back at the University of Illinois Springfield. She volunteers several hours each week mentoring middle school students through the 4H program. She also mentors fellow college students as part of the Necessary Steps Program and is a member of the Kinky & Curly Natural Hair Empowerment Club and Legacy Dance Team. Following graduation, she hopes to attend medical school and one day become a researcher in the field.
She is a recipient of the Sangamon State University Alumni Association Scholarship and the Central Illinois Community Blood Center Clinical Laboratory Science Program Scholarship.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
