Work Position: Marketing and Communications

“Our lives are shaped by the opportunities we choose to take. Miss Elizabeth Wilson, through her vision of what Montreat College could be, chose to take every opportunity to bless Montreat College. As a Wilson Scholar in her honor, I have been given the ability through my time in the President’s Office to believe and pour into my college, to see what it means to lead and paint a vibrant vision for others, and to step further into what it means to honor God with the entirety of my gifts. I am thankful for this opportunity and its potential to shape who I am, preparing me with ways, not only spiritually, but also through the vocation He wills me to have, to honor the Lord with my life.”
