You could say Van Tran got the most out of her college experience.
Tran graduated cum laude from Emory & Henry College in 2005. She was a Bonner Scholar for three years. And she received the outstanding senior scholarship at graduation.
Despite those accomplishments, Tran said she most appreciates the community service she performed while a student --- swinging a hammer for Habitat for Humanity and being a friend to youth with disabilities at River’s Way adventure center.
