Meredith Hagerty

YR Alumna, University of Southern Indiana Sophomore

YR has single-handedly changed my life for the better. YR has given me a foundation of skills that will lead me in not only personal life, but my professional life. I will forever be in debt to YR for the time and love they have invested into me and my future. YR has shown me what being a servant leader means. My time at YR has brought me a second family that I hope to introduce the whole world to.”

Garret Whipple

Harrison High School Senior, TAC Member

YR has opened me up to a lot of different opportunities to better myself and help my community, but being an executive member of TAC has been one of the most rewarding. It has helped me become a better leader and has prepared me for life in the future. I have become more organized, a better public speaker and am able to confidently lead a group of people.”

Rupa Ponna

YR Alumna, University of Notre Dame Freshman

“The environment created by YR radiates such positivity and has provided a safe space for me to voice my opinions. Through YR, I developed a love for serving beyond what I ever could have imagined. I’ve made so many lifelong friends what motivate me to do better and be better. I love being part of an organization that betters the lives of so many students like myself.”
