"When I came to UNK on a visit for art education it was my first ever college visit, and it ended up being my only college visit because I loved it so much.“ Kameran Ulferts spoke about how Professor Cavill inspired her. “Looking around at this artwork in general he kind of explained to me what different classes were like and what it would look like becoming an art education major at UNK, and it was just a one and done thing for me. It was like this is what I want to do, and he's an awesome mentor for me to this day.”
