Karen Wallace, M.A. English and M.Div. New Theologies, is a retired English instructor, now in her 40th year at WVC, currently teaching English part-time and volunteering as campus chaplain, because she loves this institution, her colleagues, the classroom, and, above all, the students.
Her special ministry is for those students who have been hurt by racism, sexism, homophobia, and more subtle cultural and parochial assumptions that undermine their self-determination.
In her counseling at Student Health Services, she discovered a serious need for a special fund for struggling students, and now feeds the Student Assistance Emergency Fund with proceeds from the sale of her nature and travel photography, another passion, so that they may be able to stay in school and succeed in their goals. firstname.lastname@example.org
This event is free and open to everyone.
It is funded by Karen Wallace’s generous contribution and a grant from the Office of the WVC President.
