It’s been a long 7 years since I’ve been on campus, besides an event here and there over the years…Alumni Weekend or the Wayland Gala. As a member of the class of 2013, I am beyond thrilled to be working at Wayland as part of the admissions team. Not only am I returning to the spot where I created some of my favorite memories, I am back to my hometown of Beaver Dam!
Being back on campus, so much has changed but at the same time, a lot has remained the same. The undeniable beauty of the historical buildings, smiling faces of faculty and students (behind masks of course) and the academic rigor that continues to prep students for their future.
Hearing that a position in admissions had opened up at Wayland, I felt a level of excitement that couldn’t be tamed. I imagined myself showing prospective students around the campus I grew up on, taking them in the classrooms where Mr. Osvald taught me U.S. history, Ms. Krause showed me proper sentence structure or Mr. Cleary led in-depth discussions on Comparative Religion. And although this pandemic has gotten in the way of in-person visits, I have the tools and knowledge to still show prospective students our beautiful campus and opportunities available.
I take pride in what Wayland has taught me and I am enthused to have the opportunity to show prospective students what we have to offer them.
I'd love to tell you my favorite stories and why Wayland is the best high school ever* so let's chat—email@example.com! *I am slightly biased.
