Julie Lee McGill '14Conway, Arkansas
Julia Lee spent the summer of 2012 interning as the editorial assistant at the Toad Suck Review, a literary journal published by the University of Central Arkansas. As the editor-in-chief of the Hendrix literary magazine, Aonian, and an English studies-creative writing major, Julia Lee felt comfortable proofreading a manuscript for publication which happened to be written by her English professor, Dr. Tyrone Jaeger. “I adore the Hendrix literary community, so why not be a part of a larger one too? Lately I've been thinking of venturing out into the big literary magazine world, but who knows. That's the beauty of Hendrix-I have options and people to help me get there, and I think I'll figure it out...”
David Allan '14 and Sreesh Reddy '14Missouri City, Texas and Little Rock, Arkansas
David and Sreesh were among the more than 80 entrepreneurs involved in the 2013 Startup Weekend Little Rock at the Clinton School of Public Service.

The team built a service that provides an easy way for students, schools, and service sites to verify and communicate public service hours. The Simple Service team took home $1,000 in cash plus free startup consulting services.
Elizabeth Krug '14Heber Springs, Arkansas
Elizabeth, a biology major, became a national heptathlon champion at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships in May 2013, in La Crosse, Wis. Aspiring for a career as a pediatrician since the age of 14, Krug never imagined herself as a college athlete simply because of the academic dedication she knew she would need to become a doctor. While Krug could compete at a bigger school, she prefers running in D-III for the joy of it. In addition to the athletic opportunities, Krug attributes her Hendrix education to expanding her goals academically. With the support of Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning, she traveled to Europe last year, completed research in the kinesiology department, and traveled to Guatemala this summer for a month of volunteer service.
