the College and shares stories of their philanthropic impact.
Tybush joined Skidmore as a matriculated transfer student and employee in 2018 after completing her associate degree in fine arts.

Tybush is a regular participant in the Scholarly and Creative Endeavors (SCE) writing groups that are managed through the Center for Leadership in Teaching and Learning.
“I’m so thankful to the SCE groups,” she said. “Their encouragement and their advice helped me land a fellowship with the MDOCS Storytellers’ Institute in June as the inaugural staff fellow..”

She has performed on stage, she has composed music and she has even made films, one of which earned two awards.
