Spotlight on Seniors
In May 2017, the Department of History says goodbye to its student worker since August 2013. Quanteria Wilson is graduating with a Bachelor of Science in History.
For the history faculty, it has been a privilege to watch Quanteria grow from a wide-eyed freshman to a leader in the history program. Known for her clothes emblazoned with images of Marilyn Monroe, she has been and is a dynamo, a leader, and a force in the department.
During her tenure as a history major, Quanteria has served as President of the History Club and Chowan’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, which is the national honor society in history. Quanteria is also a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society and the Honors College.
Despite all of this, Quanteria will be remembered by the history faculty for her astounding ability to cope with tragedy. Her faithful service to the department, her leadership roles, and her academic success occurred despite experiencing the loss of her mother at the end of her sophomore year.
She will be missed, but the faculty know that they will be impressed with all of her new accomplishments in the next phase of her life.
