Jackie Sheridan named director of the Wake Forest Scholars Program

Wake Forest welcomes Jackie Sheridan as the new director of the Wake Forest Scholars Program, which supports undergraduates and recent graduates applying for competitive scholarships and fellowships. Sheridan comes to Wake from Jackie Sheridan headshotVanderbilt University, where she spent the past two years as the Associate Director of Post-Baccalaureate Opportunities. She has also been the Senior Program Manager for the Pickering Fellowship at the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars, and she has an extensive background in interdisciplinary subjects in higher education. Sheridan has quickly settled into the directorship in the Scholars Office, which oversees hundreds of student scholars, and spoken with several scholars. “I’m already impressed with their ideas and initiative. It’s going to be exciting to see them and all of our students grow and learn at Wake Forest University, and then take those skills out into the world to make an even greater impact,” Sheridan said.
