My name is Madison Johnson, and I am a student at Shippensburg University. I am entering my senior year, majoring in public service. I am a member of the Pi Sigma Alpha National Political Science Honor Society, and I am a member of the Shippensburg University Red Raider Marching Band. I will be continuing my education at Shippensburg in the Master of Public Administration program.
Throughout my time at Shippensburg, I have developed important professional relationships with my faculty members. Thanks to these connections, I have been afforded educational opportunities. Although Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education faculty focus on researching, preparing lectures, and teaching, they spend a great deal of time mentoring and assisting their students in ways that encourage them to grow. I am proud to work with an organization that has been a profoundly incredible advocate for PASSHE professors and for our students, especially in advocating for greater funding for state-owned universities. I share the organization’s value of providing quality higher education to Pennsylvania students. I look forward to being a productive member of APSCUF’s mission!
