Sara (Russell) Rodriguez ’97 was in attendance at the inauguration of Vickie Folse ’86 as the first female president of Ripon College. She spoke about Folse at the inauguration. “As a fellow nurse and graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University myself, I believe a strong background in nursing provides a unique perspective that allows us to look at problems and find solutions in ways that others might not be able to see,” Rodriguez said. “And you are an asset to any team and a strong leader.” You can read more here.
