What I Find Rewarding About D&E:
Everything! I believe in D&E and the students – past and present – who are the alumni and soon to become alumni. I love connecting with alumni and hearing their stories, how they came to be at D&E and where they have gone and what their experience at D&E means to them. One of my proudest achievements: “being an alumna of Davis & Elkins College.” Senators Forever!
