Kemeron Copper ’24
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Minor: Business Management
Upon arriving on campus from his hometown of Seattle, Washington, Kemeron felt welcomed by staff and the campus community. He is a member of the William Penn University football team and a Nursing major. This requires commitment and hard work, but he wouldn’t have it any other way. He is active on campus, serving as President of the Student Nursing Organization, Vice President of the Black Leadership Initiative, and an RA at Market dormitory. “I believe it’s important to put in the time and effort to become successful.”
Kemeron’s experience as an out-of-state student has been overwhelmingly positive, teaching him the importance of a supportive local community. “It makes you feel more at home when so many people are willing to help.” The Nursing Division has also given him a sense of belonging. “They provide a family-like structure to help nursing students accomplish their goals, are always encouraging, and make sure we are the best nurses we can be.”
His most memorable experience at WPU has been earning his white coat, a symbolic ceremony which represents being accepted into the nursing program. An accomplishment that he credits in part to the support of his parents and the faculty and staff of the Nursing Division.
