Kelsey Walls '18
Kelsey loved that Concord was not only a beautiful campus but that it also had a hometown atmosphere. By choosing Concord University it allowed her to become a third generation Mountain Lion in her family. Her service to others in the community expanded thanks to the opportunities that were offered to her through the Bonner Scholars Program and the Appalachian Leadership and Education Foundation Program. Kelsey graduated without any student debt earning her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and plans to continue her education by pursuing an MBA. It Starts With You.
“I’m a 3rd generation CU Alum. Concord has and always will be home to me.”
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.
