President - October 23, 2019

Recently, I shadowed Katie Noll and Tyler Haney on the job at The Ram Shop, WCU’s new convenience store that features an employment readiness program for students who identify on the autism spectrum. The shop is part of the University’s Dub-C Autism Program, also known as D-CAP, which provides support to students with autism to increase their retention and graduation rates, as well as help them secure gainful employment post-graduation.

Every September, I receive lots of advice from Martin Dallago. He'll tell me to straighten my shoulders as I walk or to project my voice to the back of the room. He's even been known to remove lint from my suit.

President - January 28, 2019

Recently, I spent a day on the job with Tammy Hilliard-Thompson, who is interim director of WCU's Lawrence A. Dowdy Multicultural Center. Although I knew the center was well-utilized, I was surprised to see just how busy it can get. Designed to promote the academic achievement and personal development of more than 3,700 African-American, Latino/a, Asian-American, and Native American students, the center is a home base for coordination of services as well as a gathering place where students socialize and connect. The day I worked there, every desk, seat, and ottoman was taken.

Jared Brown has 3,975 students to get ready for college. While he may not be the one buying these students double XL bed sheets or taking them to the doctor for meningitis shots, the work he's doing to help students prepare is critically important.
