Alumni Council

The Wilmington College Alumni Council exists to create and expand positive engagement amongst the entire College community. The council actively seeks opportunities to cultivate relationships with alumni of all ages and places, while providing a welcoming organization for all Wilmington College students, faculty, staff, friends, and parents.

The Council will accomplish this mission with organized communication, events, programs, and service by providing support and feedback to the College where the council believes will deliver positive impact on the Wilmington College student and greater community.

The Alumni Council meets four times a year. Each member will also participate in a council subcommittee. Our subcommittee structure is designed to allow for open and purposeful meetings that engage important pillars of what the Council believes most beneficial to the College, alumni community, and current students. These subcommittee’s also meet quarterly.

The Alumni Council subcommittees:

  • Alumni Engagement
  • Admissions
  • Marketing and Communications
  • Career Services

What Quaker Core value resonates with you most as a Wilmington College Alumni and why?

The Quaker core value that comes forward from my time at Wilmington College is Service and Civil Engagement. I become a children’s librarian and work in neighborhood’s other librarians don’t want to work – inner cities or poor rural areas, because this is where I can make a difference in the lives of children who need the most. I stay involved in the community to make the world a better place for kids.

What is a fond memory you would like to share about your time as a student at Wilmington College?

My favorite memory from Wilmington College was working for five Cincinnati Bengals training camps in the dining rooms where they ate. I have some funny stories which could embarrass some of the players now announcing games for the major television networks.

What Quaker Core value resonates with you most as a Wilmington College Alumni and why?

I am a Consultant of Community Outreach for the IU Health East Central Region for the past seven years. I was involved in Public Relations, Marketing, and Human Resources earlier in my career.

I didn’t always think it would turn out this way, but my current role aligns with Wilmington College values in that I get to promote civic engagement and a sense of community every day. Our health system values include promoting better access to care and healthier lifestyles.

What piece of advice would you share with a current student about their time at Wilmington College?

My advice for students is to not necessarily rush into a major or field of study. You can have an idea, but odds are you’ll be a different person coming out of school than starting. I chose the more direct path, and fortunately it worked out eventually (see above).

Why are you involved with the Wilmington College Alumni Council?

I am involved with the Alumni Council because I enjoyed my time at Wilmington College and formed friendships that continue to this day.  Through the classes I took, my position as a Resident Assistant, and the people I met, I discovered interests and got involved in things that played a role in shaping who I am.

What is a fond memory you would like to share about your time as a student at Wilmington College?

During my senior year, a couple of friends and I would go down to the General Denver for Open Mic Night each week.  We would usually end up running into other students or Wilmington College community members we knew.

What Quaker Core value resonates with you most as a Wilmington College Alumni and why?

The Quaker Value that most resonates with me is service and civic engagement. It was during my time at Wilmington College that I first discovered my love for community involvement and service. Two things I’m very passionate about and extremely involved with throughout the greater Raleigh area and beyond today.

Why are you involved with the Wilmington College Alumni Council?

I’m a very proud alumni of Wilmington College. I speak about my undergraduate experiences often and have worked hard to broaden recruitment of Wilmington College alums into our school district and promote the college in general to friends throughout the Raleigh area and southeastern region.  Being involved with alumni council when the opportunity presented itself was a perfect fit.
