Who We Are

punith shankar - program director


Hello everyone! I’ll be serving as your Programs Director for the Leadership Honors Program. I’m an Information Systems graduate student. My hometown is Bangalore, India. Leadership is something I’ve always been keen on and been working with all my life. I believe in giving back to the society - Back at home, I was an English Tutor for 8th grade students at a Non-profit organization and I look forward to contribute to the community here as well. Cooking and Photography are my go to during my leisure. I’ve been a part of the Leadership Honors Program for over a year and it has thought me so much and I’m really excited about the things to come. If you’re looking for an overall Leadership development, this program is for you!

Natalia Ibarra - marketing director


Hey Y'all!! I am honored to be the Marketing Director for LHP. I'm a International Business Administration senior from south Texas. I've been involved with LHP for 3 years. Last year I was part of the LHP Leading League. This program has allowed me to grow and find out about different events on campus and be able to meet and network with people who I would’ve not been able to otherwise. Outside of LHP I serve as the Continuing Education chair for my sorority Tri Delta and I actively volunteer at the Police Department. I love sharks, playing tennis, photography and exploring places. Thank you for visiting our website. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions at any time!
