“My experience as a student at Waynesburg University instilled in me a desire to light the way for others through the motto of ‘Fiat Lux,’ which means ‘let there be light.’ I learned the value of caring and compassionate mentorship from the small classes and relationships with faculty at Waynesburg University. Now as a young professor myself, I consistently draw upon my Waynesburg experience to guide me. I seek to pay forward my Waynesburg experience by helping my students find their path like I did.”
