Alumni Ambassador - Marisa Richardson

"I hope my story will inspire others who aren’t sure if Kettering is right for them. I know what it's like to face barriers—as a Flint native, as the first person in my family to go to college, and as a woman in a male-dominated industry. My Kettering education, study-abroad experience, and friendships have changed my life and opened doors I might never have tried. I’m grateful for the support I had along the way, and now I’d like to pay it forward. It’s an honor to serve as an alumni ambassador and encourage the next generation of Kettering Built. Engaging with our exceptional students always inspires me to volunteer more!"
