Alumni Stories

Natasha Wilkins

A 2014 graduate in Agricultural and Consumer Economics (Public Policy), Natasha is now working with Teach for America and preparing to apply to law school.

She has always loved giving her time and talents to others. While on campus she participated in study abroad and many mission trips. She also attended the volunteer career fair to learn more about the Teach for America program, which offers an opportunity for college graduates to give back to others before pursuing their own long term goals.

Now, Natasha is a teacher at a Title I school in Memphis, Tenn. In addition to teaching, she serves as the History Department chair, coaches track, runs ACT Club, and is helping plan the school's first international trip to Ghana.

After finishing her two years of teaching, she is planning to apply for law school and pursue a public policy concentration.
