Morgan Sorrell - Carroll Community College
Morgan has a deep love of learning, one that inspired her to overcome obstacles and deepen her commitment to help others. Acknowledging her ADHD, Morgan believes that there is no one learning style, and that educational systems must improve to acknowledge these learning differences. We have already seen Morgan’s commitment to education reform here on campus, as she encourages dialogue around issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. She is passionate that change is needed, particularly for minority students and those with disabilities, and we welcome her advocacy as we look to continuously enhance our service to those students.

President, Carroll Community College
Volunteering is important to me because I want to have a role in the ability for humanity to progress. I have a strong desire to help serve and nurture positive growth and education within every community that I am a piece of. I want to use this opportunity as more than a resume builder or an extracurricular activity, but to support others in helping others. I feel that through this opportunity I would have the ability to be a part of much needed change in the community and hopefully be able to inspire others to step up however they are able to as well. My main inspiration is from my own struggles in accepting and adapting to my ADHD and learning disabilities, my desire to fight for equality, and my passion for education reform to create a program that can help those in my community. Being a part of the Mid-Atlantic Civic Fellowship will allow me to bring forth this positive change in the communities that I love so much.
