Welcome, Savanna!

Savanna Steed

Savanna Steed, a Masters student in the Speech Language Pathology department at USU, was hired at the beginning of the current school year as the Aggies Elevated MyCLIMB Coordinator. MyCLIMB is the acronym for the Aggies Elevated person-centered planning process, and stands for “My Career Ladder for Independence, Maturity, and Balance.”

In addition to meeting regularly with students to track their progress, Savanna is the first line of support for the mentors, who provide about 10 hours of support per week for Aggies Elevated students.

While Savanna is new to the position, she is no stranger to Aggies Elevated, having been a mentor for two years, as well as a volunteer tutor.

In her free time, Savanna loves to ride her horses, fish at her family’s cabin, and give horse riding and rodeo queen lessons to youth rodeo participants.

Welcome, Savanna!

Aggies Elevated at Utah State University believes that all individuals, regardless of ability, have the right to meaningful employment, lifelong learning, self-determination and full community inclusion. Utilizing the MyCLIMB (My Career Ladder to Independence, Maturity & Balance) person-centered planning model, Aggies Elevated students, along with invited family members and/or other stakeholders, will chart their own paths toward independence within an individualized framework of supports that identifies challenges, builds on individual strengths and encourages personal responsibility.
