Cinderella can have her glass slipper, this princess wears cleats!

We are proud to introduce you to Mallory, one of our undergraduate students in the Communication Disorders Program. While Mallory is an engaging and successful student in our program she is also a superstar on the MSU softball team. We know both of these areas of her life are important to her and we wanted you to meet her! Thanks for all you do for MSU!

 I have been blessed with this opportunity to be a student athlete. With this opportunity, I am able to major in communication disorders and also play softball. A combination of both has taught me time management skills along with discipline and goal setting. Being an athlete has helped me to learn perseverance, hard work, and dedication. All of which I hope to provide for my clients one day. It has also kept me mindful of when I and others have reached our limits. Lastly, it has taught me about teamwork and its importance in all aspects of life. Being a part of softball has taught me how to be an effective team member and understand others views. Teamwork is vital in the speech language pathology profession because there is much collaboration with other professionals.
