Dr. Bill Collins and his wife, Karen.
The Honors College recently had a chance to
catch up with Thaiddeus “Ted” Dillie, a class of 2020 West Virginia University and Honors College
graduate. Ted graduated with a bachelor of science in biochemistry, a major
which is a collaboration between the Davis and Eberly Colleges.
Ted, a Weirton,
West Virginia native, was exposed to strong WVU pride throughout his childhood, so his decision to attend
college here was not a difficult choice. However, as a first-generation college
student, navigating the waters at such a big university was an adjustment for
Ted. Ted said his experiences with the Honors College and within his
major allowed him to have a rich and unique experience at WVU, one he hopes
to continue in his future.
Dr. Ashley Watts coordinates the mentoring and tutoring programs in the West Virginia University Honors College and is the faculty sponsor for the Mountaineer Tutoring Network. She also serves as the academic advisor for exploratory students in the Honors College, helping those students consider their interests and options across WVU.
Dr. Watts was recently awarded the Outstanding Advisor Award from the Honors College, and also serves as a certified Gallup CliftonStrengths Coach, helping Honors students discover their strengths and how to use them to be successful in college and beyond.
The Honors College recently had the chance to sit down and chat with
Thomas Kleeh, District Judge for the Northern District of West Virginia. Judge Kleeh joined the Honors Program at West Virginia University in 1992 and
graduated with a bachelor of science in business administration with an
emphasis in accounting in 1996.
Kleeh discussed influential classes and
people he encountered throughout his time with the Honors Program that
continue to shape his life to this day.
