A liberal arts education has prepared me to run a business, mentor, and coach staff. My degree provided excellent reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. I was taught to analyze, react, and keep an open mind to opportunities and change. This has allowed me to take on various roles in my career including my current role as Publisher of The Daily Record.
Who was your favorite faculty/staff member?
Dr. Shad was my favorite staff member even though he taught political science, not English. I had many great professors. Dr. Shad spent time talking with my friends and me and even attended some social events such as a backyard BBQ. He was family away from home while still giving me a strong academic foundation.
What is your favorite Washington College memory?
Everything about WC is a great memory. I loved the campus (especially in the spring and fall), the faculty and staff who treated us like family, working in the catering department and visiting various Eastern Shore destinations, participating in a sorority, building friendships that are still strong today, and creating a network of professionals who I can contact anytime for advice or resources. The campus has grown and the buildings are more grand but WC is still the incredible community it was when I graduated in 1995.
