Pamela Schreurs


Hello everyone! My name is Pamela and I am a nursing student at NU. My focus is in pediatrics and psychosocial nursing. I am a Navy veteran and mom to two wonderful, quirky children. When I am not in school, I enjoy volunteering at the local children’s hospital and with Girl Scouts San Diego. Last July I was welcomed into the NU Scholars Program. This program has enhanced my leadership skills and allowed me to be more involved in my community. Early in my nursing program I joined Pride @ NU. It has been a pure joy to see the club blossom and become what is. Late last year, I was honored to become president of Pride @ NU.  Being president has been a privilege and together with my wonderful board and club members, we will continue to grow within the great San Diego community.

Trey George

Media Liaison

Hello everyone! My name is Trey George, and I am the Media Liaison for PRIDE@NU. In 2016, I moved to San Diego from my small hometown in Georgia, and restarted my educational journey with National University’s Digital Media Design program. Through this program, I seek to create video games for underrepresented demographics, because I want to bring diversity to the video game industry and the content of the products. Within my first year of attending National University, I was inducted into National University’s Scholars Program, and this great honor has provided with me with the proper leadership skills necessary to reach my goal for the inclusion in the video game industry. After that honor, I accepted the position as the first Media Liaison for PRIDE@NU, and through this position, I will be working toward informing NU students and faculty about the club, events, and announcements pertaining the club over social media outlets.
