2015wffellows.300x175

By Madeline Stone, News and Communications Intern

Ten seniors will remain at Wake Forest following graduation as Wake Forest Fellows, working in the President’s Office, Information Systems, University Advancement and in other offices around campus.

Since 2008, the Wake Forest Fellows program has provided exceptional graduates with a chance to work in higher education administration for a year. Each fellow will serve as a full-time University employee for a year. In addition to working with top administrators in a particular department, the fellows will participate in leadership activities and interact with faculty, staff and students to learn about the inner workings of higher education.

“I am excited about welcoming aboard this class of new Fellows,” said Marybeth Wallace, special assistant to the President. “They are a tremendously talented group and they’ve been involved in every aspect of the life of Wake Forest and making it a better place. My hope for them is that they continue to learn all they can as Fellows and that they grow personally and professionally.”

The Wake Forest Fellows for 2015-16 are:
