Dr. Hodge’s Conrad Program experience:

“As a first-generation college student, the Conrad Program gave me an experience of a lifetime. The experiences, exposure, skill development, and networking opportunities attributed to many successful opportunities. Not only did I receive professional growth, I gained a family. Senator West, Ms. Barton, and the Alums continuously motivate and push me to reach my wildest dreams. I’m honored to continue to grow the legacy of this phenomenal program.” 

Dr. Hodge’s advice for current Conrad Interns:

“Become a lifelong learner! Set goals, map out a plan, and never give up on your dreams. It is imperative that you take advantage of every opportunity presented before you. Most importantly, it is crucial that you get a mentor that will challenge and coach you through this journey called life. Above all, remain humble and give back to the community.”

Dr. Hodge’s hobbies:

Enjoying new experiences via travel, taking on new adventures/challenges with family and friends, mentoring ambitious youth, and watching “Food Network.”
