Hometown: Sherrills Ford, N.C.

Major: Geology, History and Accounting and Business Administration

Post-Graduation Plans: I will be living in Arlington, VA with two other W&L alums. In September, I will begin working for PricewaterhouseCoopers in McLean, VA. I will be an associate in corporate tax. Hopefully I will be assigned to a subgroup that deals with international taxation.

What will you miss most about W&L?

The camaraderie with my fraternity brothers and the sense of community I get among my fellow students. I have most enjoyed that there is always something to do during my free time.

How are you different now than you were four years ago?

Through class presentations and leadership opportunities, I am a more confident public speaker than before.

Do you have any advice for incoming freshmen?

First and foremost, set goals then go after them. Your time is limited here so make the most of it with your activities and friendships.

What do you most look forward to after graduation?

Going to see my nephews in Andorra.
