Faces of LIFE- Amber Sproule

Amber Sproule grew up in Middle Georgia, and she is the second oldest of five kids.

I also loved the peaceful campus environment and that it was close to my family,” said Sproule.

My 1st Quarter: Tatum Johnson

Take every opportunity you can. Join the clubs you never thought you liked. One time I sat in on the Nutrition Club with one of my teammates and even though I am not in any dietetics classes, I thought it was so fun. So, make sure to try every opportunity even if you don’t think it’s what you wanted. Just try it, it’s going to be okay.
