“Without question, I count Sainna Christian in the top 1% of all college students in the nation. Her insatiable intellect, contagious energy, and obvious passion for improving the world by helping others distinguishes her from peers. During my tenure as Vice President for Academic & Student Affairs at LeMoyne-Owen College, I worked with Sainna (SGA President) to enhance the student experience both on- and off-campus. She was a conscious, powerful voice for all students. The light of her future shines brightly!”
