“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us” – J.R.R. Tolkien
This is Katie Ratcliffe's favorite quote.

She was a Social Work major with minors in Women and Gender studies, Sociology and Civic Engagement. Katie made the Dean’s list every semester, and was president of the Concord Social Work Club. She received the Social Work Student of the Year award.

During her time at Concord University as a busy commuter student, she was very active on campus and passionately pursued her education while also helping others learn. Katie was a Bonner Scholar, and accrued 1,680 hours of community service while at Concord. She tutored for Student Support Services and took notes for disabled students through the Concord Disability Services Office. In the Epsilon Delta Chapter, Katie served as Parliamentarian.

Katie was willing to help any student that came to her. She tutored countless students and helped many friends and Delta Zeta sisters with their academic planning, both through her tutoring position and as a volunteer. During her last semester as an undergraduate, Katie received the Judith Herndon Fellowship through which she did field placement at the West Virginia Legislature under Senator/Minority Leader, and Gubernatorial candidate, Jeff Kessler. She is currently working towards her master's degree in social work, and she plans to do fieldwork in counseling at the Veterans Administration hospital. Katie then hopes to take time off before going on to pursue a doctorate of social work.
