Lehmanite Spotlight

(Pizza with the VP sign by student, JJ, Photo by Mildred Perez)

Meet VP Wright: The first "Lunch with the VP" this semester took place during last week's Lehman Spirit Day, which featured great conversations and pizza.

"Last semester I relaunched and rebranded school spirit day and lunch with the VP once a month all in an attempt to engage, interact, and connect with students to create a sense of belonging. If students know that they belong, they can be retained, and if they are retained they can graduate."

Vice President for Student Affairs, Jermaine Wright
