Anna Leigh Powell - Treasurer

anna.powell@smail.astate.edu

Hello! My name is Anna Leigh Powell. I am the 2019-2020 Treasurer. I am currently a senior in the traditional BSN program. I came to college from a small town, uncertain of what my future would become. It was a nurse that provided care to someone I love that inspired me to apply to nursing school. Throughout nursing school I have been continually ensured that I am in the right place. To me, nursing school is an endless field of opportunity. I love the fact that whether you further your education or not, you can always learn something new or move to a new area of nursing. In the future I plan to go to graduate school of some form. Regardless of what type of field I go into, my biggest mission in nursing is to become the kindhearted remembered nurse. I am looking forward to this exciting year.

Katie Howard - Breakthrough to Nursing Chair

Hello all! My name is Katie Howard, and I will be serving as the Breakthrough to Nursing chairperson for the 2019-2020 school year. I’m still unsure about what area of nursing I would like do after graduation. I just know that I want to be present for patients and their families in their times of vulnerability by providing the best care and sustainable education. I recently finished a nurse externship at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis in March. Since then, I have started working at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and will also be working at UAMS this summer. I enjoy listening to true crime podcasts, reading thrillers and psychological fiction, baking and decorating sugar cookies, and calligraphy. I am looking SO forward to my last year of nursing school and getting to work with you all during the CPR courses and SNA events!

Brenda Awuah - Accelarated Representative

brenda.awuah@smail.astat.edu

Howdy everyone!

 My name is Brenda Awuah and I am from a small town called Texarkana, Texas. I have the pleasure of being the Accelerated Representative for the 2019-2020 school year. I am so blessed to be here at A-State to pursue another degree in nursing. I had always believed I would be a physician but my experience as a medical scribe quickly convinced me that nursing was the field I wanted to be in. My hopes after graduation is to work either in the ICU or ER setting and eventually return back to school for my masters to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. 

When I am not studying for school, you can find me in my bed either taking one of my daily naps or binge watching some of my favorite shows on Netflix. 

I can't wait to serve my class through this position!

Hey guys, my name is Nicholas Harris and I will be the Senior Representative for the 2019-2020 year! I have been a member of SNA since 2018 and look forward to representing my class within the executive board. In addition to my role as senior representative I also serve as the Lead Peer Tutor and am a member of Phi Kappa Phi as well as Sigma Theta Tau. Before college, I always thought I would become a physician, but I found my passion at the bedside caring for patients. Providing holistic bedside care, physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual, is the thing that I love most about nursing. My interests include neurology and cardiology as well as critical, palliative, and progressive care. Post-graduate I plan to move to Memphis, TN to pursue a position within a progressive care or critical care unit that specializes in the pediatric population.
