We are fortunate to have a wonderful peer staff who are excited to work with our CHE first-year and upper-class students.
Erick Chavez, Peer Mentor
Hello everyone, my name is Erick and I am a senior majoring in Mexican American Studies with minors in Human Services and Multicultural Anthropology. I am the first one in my family to attend a university, and I am very excited to continue my education. I am a McNair and Reisher Scholar and I plan to attend graduate school after graduating from UNC. Aside from my involvement in CHE I am involved in the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). I also enjoy reading and watching movies in my free time. I am excited to be working for CHE and looking forward to meeting many new people.

I hope you all come by to say hello!
Kimberlee Ward, Peer Mentor
Hello!! I’m Kimberlee Ward, majoring in Human Services with a minorin Psychology, and I am currently a junior. What I want to achieve as a peer adviser is to be able tobe aperson that CHE students can always come to; that after their first year they are able to say that they made it and will continue to make it. I want CHE students to be able to look up to me in allthat they do. I hope to bring out the talents that they could not always see within themselves. I am not sure what I want students to remember me by I just hope that their memories are filled with joy and smiles.
