Hi there! My name is Lauren Hogikyan and I am studying special education at Grand Valley State University.

Over the last three years I served on our executive board, and last year I served as our chapter president. The student chapter at Grand Valley has further confirmed my passion for special education and I am thrilled every day with my career path. I am looking forward to the year ahead representing student chapters on the Michigan Council for Exceptional Children!
