Oakvale, West Virginia
Hannah is a first generation Mountain Lion and majoring in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. Hannah transferred to Concord during her freshman year after a previous experience at another university where she never really felt at home. She found her way to Concord University and found the sense of community she was looking for. Specifically, Hannah has loved the class sizes at Concord and the fact that no matter where you go or who you talk to, you will see a smile. The welcoming and genuine community found at Concord has made Hannah’s experience an enjoyable atmosphere to learn and grow in.
“Through CU not only have I been able to pursue my dreams, but I have been able to take advantage of an abundance of opportunities for personal growth.”
Dr. Scott Inghram '03
MSW Program Director and Associate Professor
“Students are the best part of my job and I hope that I am a positive part of their learning experience at the Campus Beautiful.”
Dr. Inghram says working for the Social Work department at Concord allows him to impart skills and knowledge in order to better serve our global community while addressing specific needs and issues. He believes our students have the opportunity to not only build the knowledge base they need, but to engage in “doing” in order to put their newly formed knowledge into practice. Dr. Inghram and the Social Work faculty are continuously researching and serving on boards and committees to make sure the program at CU prepares our students to take on the many issues challenging our state and local communities.
