  • Chloe Lubag ’20 – Legal Studies Major

    • From Las Vegas to Kentucky Wesleyan

    • Chloe knew Wesleyan was going to be a change for her, from attending high school in Las Vegas, Nevada.  What she didn’t know was how the experience would help her grow and make her confidence blossom.  As one of our Rogers’ Fellows Scholarship winners we expected big things from Chloe and she did not disappoint.  “I do plan on getting my face out there more and being more involved in the school and what It’s about.” Due to Chloe’s current involvement in our Student Ambassador Program, she was awarded our “Rookie Student Ambassador of The Year” award.

      Daphne has been involved at Wesleyan from day one.  She has traveled with professors to Chicago for conferences, Orlando with her sorority on a volunteer trip, San Diego to assist with refugees and Philadelphia to work the Democratic National Convention. “After graduation, I’m going to the Peace Corps in Mongolia and I’m teaching English through the Let Girls Learn Program to middle school and high school students.”  We expected nothing else from this world traveler.

  • Elissa Starheim ’17 – Biology Major

    • Internships helped shape her career choice

    • Elissa transferred after her freshman year of college and never looked back.  “Wesleyan is famous for their Wesleyan Way, two parts is that we love each other and support each other, and you will definitely feel that on campus.”  Elissa was able to find what she was looking for with Wesleyan and thrived with our small class sizes.  She was able to intern at Owensboro Public Health which helped her select her career path.  She will be using her Biology degree to continue her education in an accelerated nursing program.

  • Jennifer Walker-Crawford ’17 – Accounting

    • A chance visit changed her path

      “When you walk into an admissions office you just kind of expect the general, welcome to our school, here is a little bit about us and everything, but here, I felt like I was already part of something.”  Jennifer felt at home from day one at Wesleyan and knew this was where she wanted to be.   As a scholar-athlete and accounting major, Jennifer had her hands full, but had supportive faculty always there to lend a helping hand.  Her academic success at Wesleyan helped jumpstart her career when she obtained a Tax Accountant position with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

  • Tavis Tinsley ’17 – Psychology Major

    • Wesleyan helped him make an impact

    •  “When you first step on campus, not only do they make you feel like you’re somebody, but they encourage that throughout your college career. They make you feel important. They let you know that you will have an influence on your environment.” Tavis wasn’t always sure what he wanted to do, but through the guidance of his professors and the help and connections of the Office of Career Development, he found his path and will be giving back to others by beginning a career in counseling.
