Described by one of her professors as "a remarkable achiever," Amy Pitchforth's dedication to her studies and determination to succeed is evidenced by her numerous accomplishments at SSU.
Born legally blind, Amy has faced many challenges in her life. Her Scholastic abilities are evidenced in a 4.0 grade point average, and from the comments of professors who describe her as thoughtful, insightful, and creative.
With a major in multi-subject education and psychology, her career goals are in the area of bilingual education, preferably in an Elementary school setting. Psychology has also influenced her professional goals, and she has considered applying to Harvard or Yale to complete a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology.
Amy's on-campus activities include active membership in Alpha Gamma Delta where she holds the position of Vice President for Scholarship. In this capacity she proctors and tutors several hours each week. She also serves on the SSU Student Union Board of Directors. Off campus, Amy spends time in a second grade classroom at Gold Ridge Elementary School.
Amy has recently taken up scuba diving and designed a project that helped other students feel rather that see the objects of the sea. And, with a great sense of adventure, she participates in field exploration trips such as cave exploration and has helped shovel gravel to rebuild a hiking trail for one of her classes.
