Summer 2012 Connections to PEPP Alumni

It's been said that PEPP is much more that just a 4 week summer program. As a participant in the program, you become a part of the "PEPP family". We continue to work with our alumni throughout undergrad and even into professional school. Brandon McGeorge (PEPP 2009) shares his PEPP story and how the program impacted his life (below). He spent the past three summers in ULSOM Minority and Rural Affairs Programs (SMDEP 2010; MCAT-DAT 2011). When it came time to decide what to do during break this year, he chose to come back to Louisville and serve as a Student Development Assistant for the 2012 PEPP program.  

Speaking of family, we often have siblings participate in PEPP across the years. Last summer, PEPP 2007 alumni Ben Cocanougher served as a Student Development Assistant. This summer we're glad to have his sister Sarah as a participant in the program! Ben is finishing his first year of medical school at the University of Rochester School of Medicine. Here's Ben's story below.
