Mikayla McMullen '18
Mikayla began her journey at Concord as an undecided major. After attending a conference with her mother, who is a business educator, she left inspired and acknowledged her desire to educate the younger generations about business. This ultimately began Mikayla’s journey in pursuing a degree in Education. Whether she was in the classroom or on the sidelines cheering on the Mountain Lions, she knew Concord was right for her. Mikayla earned her Bachelor of Science in Education and is now employed by Roanoke City Schools in Virginia as a Business Teacher. It Starts With You.
“From the moment I stepped foot on Concords campus I knew it was the right fit for me.”
