Castle Pines Village resident Ali Will is a high achiever in all aspects of her life. A freshman at Colorado State University (CSU), Will was recently accepted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS), a non-profit organization that recognizes outstanding college freshmen and sophomores. NSCS is dedicated to the ideals of scholarship, leadership and service.
Will was invited to join this premier organization due to her excellent grades and active involvement in her college experience. The Society seeks out students from across the country who perform at a high academic standard. As a member of NSCS, Will has access to career networking opportunities, internships, service experiences, and scholarship opportunities.
“It’s humbling to be a part of a scholastic achievement organization that shows my dedication to school and my future,” remarked Will.
Another integral aspect of NSCS is its commitment to service. Will is a member of the Student Leadership, Involvement, and Community Engagement (SLiCE) program at CSU. This program provides a link between students and their surrounding communities by providing student outreach and volunteer opportunities. “I enjoy seeing our work positively affect the community around me, and seeing the joy it brings those we help,” she said.
In her limited free time, Will is an active runner, having been a member of the Rock Canyon High School track and cross country teams for the four years that she attended high school. Currently, Will is working on her personal training certification, and hopes to work at the recreation center at CSU next fall. To learn more about NSCS, visit www.nscs.org.
