“We want to be forward thinking and we want to be able to say we did change the game, however people want to interpret that. But i think another meaning of that is to adjust and adapt in our job if there is a change.” – Pam Powers-Smith, East Alabama PRCA president
“It was really insightful to see what we are learning in school being put into real life situations and what we need to work on (as seniors) to enter the work force and be successful in the industry”- Mollie Macklin, Auburn University PRCA
