Senior Spotlight: Kyle Arcaro and Carly Pritchard

Kyle Arcaro

Kyle Arcaro is a senior with a major in Athletic Training.

“When I graduate I want to work in the scholastic setting as an AT while getting a master’s degree in Exercise science or anything I find interesting that is not a master’s in AT,” Kyle says.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Kyle moved to Believe Air MD when he was three and moved to Columbus, Ohio when he was ten.

In his time at Wilmington, Kyle has been an active member of Tau Kappa Beat since Spring of 2015. He has held multiple chairs that have helped his fraternity win Greek organization of the year twice in a row. He has been apart of Athletes in Action. He is the President of Order of Omega Honors Society for Greeks. He has been part of community service such as Relay for Life, Hour of Power, volunteering for Clinton county youth council, and Deer Creek Triathalons.

Over the summers, he has been dedicated to his job as a lifeguard at Zoombezi Bay, owned by the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

“My favorite memory at WC is getting to work all of the various sporting events this campus has and other places as part of my curriculum and with my classmates,” Kyle says. “Being able to travel to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for our Fraternity’s formal was fun too. I got to meet soon world-class athletes through athletes in action in the winter time and have fun playing games with them.”

Kyle wishes to live further Midwest in a place with a lot of open wilderness and places to explore the big city.

Kyle’s advice for underclassmen is to “keep your motivation, get in what you put out, study and have fun with it. Sure school is important, but you find out the good and bad about yourself as a whole in college. It is up to you to improve yourself and prove that you have what it takes to make it in the real world. Be scholarly and professional, keep a good image to other people about yourself even though it might not be perfect. No one is immune to flaws.”

Carly Pritchard

Carly Pritchard is a senior majoring in Spanish, Marketing, Economics majors.

Originally from Lebanon, OH, Carly got involved right away at Wilmington College by starting Amnesty International back up on campus and serving as the current president of that organization. She has served the past two years as the co-president for the International Club and the SGA Representative for the new Latino Student Association. Carly is a mentor for the WISE (Wilmington Institute for Stewardship and Engagement) Program at WC. She is in the Honors Program, the Sexual Assault Hotline Team, and Omicron Delta Kappa.

“As much as I love our campus, I think my best experiences have been the ones that offered me the opportunity to travel off-campus to various conferences, study abroad trips, and service opportunities,” says Carly. “Wilmington is small, so it’s great that we place an emphasis on getting out into our local communities, as well as experiencing different places around the world! My experiences in Colombia and Japan learning and serving were life-changing.”

After graduation, Carly is interested in working for a social-enterprise or non-profit. Specifically, she is looking for a socially-conscious, sustainable company to work with to better live out her faith and uphold justice for the oppressed.

It’s good to develop your beliefs and opinions in order to become a bridge-maker in your community that can approach issues understanding both sides. – Carly Pritchard

Carly advises underclassmen, “Test yourself! College is a place to find where you stand and what you believe, so don’t be afraid to have difficult or uncomfortable conversations with people that are different from you. It’s good to develop your beliefs and opinions in order to become a bridge-maker in your community that can approach issues understanding both sides. Work to stand in the middle, however uncomfortable, and unite those sides.”
