Lang also helps provide publicity skills for the NEXT program by promoting the personalities of the NEXT students on social media.
Lang wants to encourage other students to get to know the NEXT students on campus. “They are kind, compassionate, generous, brilliant, gracious, incredibly accepting and embracing of everyone and so funny,” Lang said. “They have been through so much, yet they persevere and continually show us all that we can do hard things! They are my heroes! I would encourage all traditional students to get involved with our students through mentoring or friendship, you will be the ones blessed by doing so.”
Menning is grateful for Lang’s contributions to the NEXT program. “From day one, Sherry has been so invested in the lives of students, providing a personal touch and involvement way beyond my expectations,” Menning said. “She is so positive, uplifting and encouraging in her daily attitude and actions – so much of that becomes contagious. I am so thankful for her, and I know God had His hand in placing her in this position ensuring the program’s success going forward.”
