Purpose

Do you want to lead your fellow alumni and be an important voice at Warren Wilson? The Alumni Board is the place where WWC graduates work together on stewardship, event, and nomination committees to engage, honor, and invite all alumni to support the College.

The Alumni Board is the governing body of the Alumni Association, which includes alumni of Warren Wilson College, Warren Wilson Junior College, Warren Wilson High School, Dorland-Bell School, Asheville Farm School, and the Warren Wilson College Master of Fine Arts (MFA) Program.

Members interact with campus leadership, including the Alumni Board President who serves an Ex-Officio member of the Board of Trustees.

Adam Pinky Stegall

“Warren Wilson has given so much to me: A network of wonderful people to land a fantastic job. Friends across the globe to visit. How to think, how to finish big projects, how to move cows and quantum mechanics. WWC taught me to be a better person and gave me a home.”

 

Adam “Pinky” Stegall ’07, Alumni Board Member
