Current data for Description

Interview with Kayla Clarke conducted by Gayle Schaub and Cara Cadena for the GVSU Libraries' Connected Exhibit, displayed in September 2016. Edited clips of interviews accompanied watercolor portraits of students and an interactive watercolor activity for exhibit visitors. Kayla is a liberal studies major, a Marine Corps veteran, a wife, a mother, and a transplant to West Michigan. She is a full-time student whose husband works an 80-100-hour active-duty job in the Marines. Kayla is determined to finish the accelerated program in lib studies in order to begin a master’s in social work wherever she and her family are posted next. Serving in the military gave Kayla a confidence and determination to succeed in her education that she didn’t have earlier as a community college student. She now wants to make sure that other veterans know about the resources available to them as they transition from military life to college life. She is an intern with the GVSU Veterans Network. She actively seeks out other veterans in classes and on campus to help them find what they need, academically, financially, and socially.
