Campus Leaders Take to Radio Waves
Posted September 27, 2012 | Atlanta, GA
The voices of campus leadership will be heard across the metro Atlanta region next week as they talk about their roles at Tech and how their lives as leaders took shape.
Each day Oct. 1–5, WREK 91.1 FM, Georgia Tech’s student radio station, will feature an interview with a prominent campus personality – be it a faculty member, staff member or alumnus – as part of a series on leadership.
“Each of the speakers has created an impact on our campus in some way, shape or form,” said Katie Flint, WREK news director. “These individuals are perfect examples of what leaders are, and they have made Georgia Tech a better place as a result.”
Guests for the series include:
- Monday: Stephanie Ray, associate dean of students and director of Diversity Programs
- Tuesday: Gary May (EE 1985), dean of the College of Engineering
- Wednesday: Miller Templeton (PHYS 1961, NE 1963), student mentor
- Thursday: Rafael Bras, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs
- Friday: G.P. “Bud” Peterson, president
Flint hopes the series motivates students to become active leaders in their own ways on campus. Among other subjects, interviewees will talk about finding a balance between academics and leadership that can help students find success both in college and their lives thereafter.
“We hope to establish this series for incoming and returning students to listen to for years to come,” Flint said. “It’s a great way to show students that they can be great students, but also great leaders, because that is what employers are ideally searching for.”
Interviews will air several times a day at 7 a.m., 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., and will also be posted online at facebook.com/wreknews.
For the interview with Peterson, students will have a chance to submit questions for potential inclusion via WREK’s Facebook page. Listeners should submit questions by Wednesday, Oct. 3.
