"It has been wonderful to have the opportunity to do something to innovative and also meaningful. The inaugural CHHS Kickbox program has helped to continue to spark my creativity and therefore encouraging others to think outside the box.... The opportunity was the highlight of my year. I feel very fortunate that I am able to keep it going." - Stacey Kolomer, Director of School of Social Work
