In December 2019, Patty received a Master of Library Science degree with a Certificate in Archives and Preservation of Cultural Materials from Queens College.
This month, Patty started as Archivist at StoryCorps, an organization whose mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.
Maybe you’ve heard StoryCorps stories during NPR’s Morning Edition on Fridays?
Thank-A-Giver Day (TAG Day) is Monday, February 10. This day provides the IWU campus community with the opportunity to thank donors who support Illinois Wesleyan. IWU celebrates each year in mid-February because it marks the symbolic point during the academic year – about 70% of the way through – when we rely on support from alumni and friends, our endowment, and external grants.
If you would like to be celebrated as a donor today, you can make a gift at iwu.edu/give.
Many thanks to Adam, Megan, and Brian for taking time to share their Sales experience during Fred Hoyt’s fall Marketing 339 class. It’s alumni like you who are empowering the next generation of marketing and sales leaders!
