Spring on the York College campus

Melissa Appnel '03

Director of K-12 Education & Assessment
West York Area School District
York College allowed me to play a sport I loved, connected me to friends I've had ever since, and networked me into my career where I've been able to grow since 2003. Over the four years, I balanced the volleyball team schedule, Campus Activities Board, Senior Class Officer activities, and academics. Tons of action and forced multitasking prepared me for the real world."

Current City: York, PA

YCP Degree: BS Elementary Education
