WACAC Board Candidates - Spring 2018
Candidate for President Elect: John McGreal
I have been working for the University of Alabama for the last five years, serving most recently as the Regional Recruiter Manager for the Midwest, managing nine recruiters from Colorado to Western Pennsylvania. Prior to this, I was an Admission Counselor for Rockford University, working with students from Wisconsin and Northwestern Illinois. Within WACAC, I have been an active member of the Conference committee for the last three years. Additionally, this past year, I have served as the Government Relations Chair after being on the committee for the past four years. Currently, I am pursuing a Masters in Higher Education Administration at the University of Alabama. I received a bachelor’s degree Social Sciences and Education from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL.
I am inspired to serve as WACAC President, because of the strength and dedication of the members of this organization. Additionally, I see the potential for us to expand our efforts increase access to college for all students in our constituencies, and professional development for our membership through new initiatives. Finally, this membership and the leaders within the organization are inspiring: there is so much we can all accomplish together.

Beth leads a team dedicated to serving mostly first generation students of color to access and persist through college.

Beth is interested in the WACAC secretary position to serve counselors and students, particularly underrepresented students, who deserve the “high-quality college counseling” and “equity and access to higher education” of the WACAC mission.
