NCARH Director: Thanh Schado

Hey NCARH! My name is Thanh Schado and I will be serving as your Director. I am currently a third-year student at Appalachian State University (Roll ‘Neers!) and I am double majoring in Sustainable Development and Community & Regional Planning.

At App, I keep myself busy through my involvement as the RHA Programming Coordinator, general member of NRHH, Recording Secretary of UREC council, and interning at the Office of Sustainability.

I am extremely passionate about sustainability which encompasses raising awareness of environmental issues, sustaining communities, and ensuring social and environmental justice for all. I believe everyone has a right to have their voice heard and deserve a platform to be able to share their ideas, beliefs, and opinions. As a student leader, this is my philosophy; to bring my peers up and to always be there to support them in times of need or adversity.

I am extremely excited for the incoming conference year to grow and become more engaged with different universities and colleges across the state of North Carolina and South Carolina. I can’t wait to meet you all!

Conference-Co Chair

Hey all! My name is Tyler Minor and I am an Environmental Science major at App State. I love the earth and the water and the air and all those things. I grew up in Camden, NC and I'm never going to live in a town that small ever again.

As one of NCARH's Conference Chairs I am really looking forward to creating a smooth, eventful, and palatable conference experience for all of you. However, beyond just the conference, I really hope to work on tangible resources and that will set NCARH apart and turn it into something truly transformative for student leaders at every part of their journey.
