WAU has appointed a new Vice President for Advancement and Alumni Relations, Ms Carolynn Yakush, effective January 23, 2023.
Carolynn was most recently leading sales and marketing for a premier medical group, where she aggressively grew the practice from 11 to 16 offices regionally. Her extensive experience building, leading and managing teams in business development, marketing and consulting across the medical, technology and healthcare industries will be invaluable, as we continue to scale our institutional advancement and recruiting programs to advance WAU’s mission.
After graduating from Forest Lake Academy, Carolynn attended Newbold College in Bracknell, England to study Business Management and Psychology. She attributes her personal and professional achievements, lifelong friendships and strong work ethic to the foundational values that were reinforced throughout her Christian Adventist education.
Carolynn is excited to help WAU engage our on-campus communities, alumni, parents and friends of WAU to expand our contributions to the broader world through our teaching, research and student financial aid programs to enable us to realize our vision for the future.
