Perla made me feel like a valued member of the ISU community, because she emailed me regarding a lost check that I had dropped earlier in the semester. She returned it to me in person, and I was so grateful!! It really made me reflect on how much good there is in people. Even though this was such a small thing, it would have been easy for someone to cash the check, as my name was already on the back of the check. Perla had to take time out of her busy schedule to look me up in the ISU directory and then email me. Students like this are who make ISU so great, and such a welcoming community. I wish her the best of luck in the spring semester and beyond – she was such a great person, and I’m thankful for her kindness!
