Misha White is an unstoppable natural force for Good. Before she was a Dean’s List student in Nonprofit Leadership and Management at Arizona State University, before she was President and Founder of Critical Connections, a student leadership group, Misha White was a student at The Early College of Arvada. And we knew her as Misha. We knew her as “Mish-Mash.”
At ECA, Misha spearheaded the blue jean drive for the homeless, the recycling club, and was a tireless advocate for Denver’s Homeless as a writer with The Denver Voice. Misha also served as ECA’s Community Events Coordinator.
But that wasn’t all.
Misha also led ECA’s first Diversity Day. Misha led ECA’s Jean Drive. And the Food Drive. And the Sleeping Bag Drive. And when she wasn’t providing community leadership, Misha won the Daniels Fund Winner, Greenhouse Scholar, and was the Class of 2014 ECA Salutatorian.
The leadership skills Misha built at ECA have sparked and spurred her path forward. Currently, Misha serves as an Arizona Scholar Ambassador for the Daniels Fund, hosting incoming Daniels Scholars and providing mentorship for incoming college students.
This past summer Misha ran as part of ECA’s Colfax Fundraising Team and interned at The Denver Foundation providing her an eye-opening, hands-on experience in the foundation’s best practices and culture.
Unstoppable Natural Forces for Good know no rest. Our world needs more “good” and more leaders like Misha. And we are proud that no matter where she leads, Misha can always call ECA home.
