Mercedes Kent

President

Hi! I’m Mercedes from Omaha, Nebraska. I am a Junior at Elon University and I am pursuing a degree in Biology with hopes to attend Medical School in the fall of 2018. I currently serve as the President of the Kappa Zeta chapter. It is truly an honor to lead a group of women who inspire me daily. I attribute the personal growth I have experienced to the relationships I have formed with current members as well as alumni. Sigma Kappa has taken my leadership to places I never thought possible and I will work with the other members of the 2017 Executive Council to take our chapter to new heights.
