I strive to live up to the legacy of my family and the values they stood for."

"I bring my A game every day because of the students. The industrial distribution program is incredibly relevant to business today, and that's what makes it so near and dear to my heart. The exceptional faculty and staff contribute to its success, and for me, it's a true calling of service. That's why I'm dedicated to bringing my absolute best to support our students and help them thrive in their educational journey,” Borsh said.
