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.”
Carter is a second generation Mountain Lion and majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting. When looking for the right college, Carter knew he would receive a high-quality education along with a personal learning experience at Concord University. He liked that when you come to Concord you instantly become a part of the Mountain Lion family due to the close-knit community created on campus. After graduating, Carter plans to attend graduate school and sit for the CPA exams. He believes Concord will have prepared him with this in knowing that the University is a recognizable school for preparing students for further education and career goals with tremendous success rates in the accounting field and many others.
“Concord has felt like home from the moment I stepped on campus in 2016, and I will be forever grateful for the time and memories made here.”
Director of Bonner Scholars Program
“Concord has not only provided me with an education and employment, but also with friends and mentors and the opportunity to connect with some amazing students.”
As the director of the Bonner Scholars Program, Kathy helps support scholars by distributing scholarship funds, teaching life skills like goal setting, time management, and budgeting, and even providing emotional support if needed. Kathy says the goal of the program is to do everything within their power to help each individual student in the program successfully complete their degree. But also, she hopes that as scholars leave Concord, they become good citizens who engage with their community and continue to serve long after their Bonner days.
