Where in the World Was Wes?

28 Stops and 100s of stories later President Fugate had a busy and productive year traversing the country to meet alumnae and alumni and hear their stories of Wilson.

Having been appointed only one month before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and the country shut down, Fugate made up for lost time and learned firsthand what the College means to her most essential and ardent supporters. After a marathon 28-stop tour of the country, he returned to Sharpe House invigorated and humbled by the welcomes he received and the outpouring of support for Wilson.
