Though we are always happy to see our consultants and employees continue on their academic and/or professional paths, it is always painful to say goodbye to members of the OUWC family. The close of the winter 2012 semester marked the graduation of twelve of our consultants—that is an OUWC record!
So, what will these talented graduates do next?
Genevieve Taylor: “I plan on continuing to work in the field with at-risk families in a counseling capacity—and gardening.”
Morgan Laidlaw: “[I plan on] exploring options having to do with research, writing, or publishing.”
Zan Giese: “I plan on spending the next year writing and reading creative pieces.”
Jenelle Dembsey: “I am going to Central Michigan University to pursue my Master’s degree in Composition and Communication. I also will be working as a graduate assistant at their writing center.”
Rachel Dalton: “I plan on moving to New York City to pursue a career as an actress in musical theatre.”
Katy Hojnacki: “I plan on looking for a career that uses both my visual literacy and writing skills. I’ll also paint and make comics.”
Enrique Paz: “I am planning on continuing my education in Rhetoric and Composition through graduate studies at Miami University of Ohio in order to pursue a career as an educator.”
Jake Matthews: “Now that I have my writing degree, I hope to have the time to write.”
Jess Tess: “I’m going on to grad school in MSU’s Writing and Rhetoric program.”
Ryan Blank: “I’m going to the University of South Florida to work as a grad assistant in Rhetoric and Composition. I’ll be teaching first year comp. courses.”

These valued team members will be sorely missed, but we wish them the best in all of their endeavors.
