Alumni panelists Lesley Fondren, Nerissa Davis, Ashley Barksdale, and Leigh Peterson addressed a crowd of about 40 gathered inside the Spencer Center. After a Q&A session, attendees stayed for a networking opportunity.


“Overall, the event very successful and inspiring, leaving students feeling insightful, more self-aware, and motivated to complete their Mary Baldwin journey and move on afterwards to do great things,” said student Kaelyn Dickinson, who works in the Office of Personal and Professional Development.
