Treece Tatum is a senior with a major in Social Work and a minor in Psychology & Sociology.
“I plan on working at Hamilton County Job & Family Services doing Children Services. I hope to be attending Simmons College Online in their Social Work Program,” Treece says.
Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Treece has taken full advantage of her time at Wilmington, holding many leadership positions such as the VP-Membership in Kappa Delta Sorority, President of the Residential Student Association, Diversity & Inclusion Intern, Sergeant at Arms for Black Student Initiative (BSI), and the Assistant Resident Director. She has been a Peer Mentor to help other students and was voted on the 2017 Homecoming Court.
“My best experience at Wilmington College [was] being able to eat lunch with my brother while he was on a tour to be an athletic trainer,” says Treece. “While this was the most recent thing to happen to me on campus it made me so happy to have my baby brother following in my footsteps. Everything I do is for my siblings and to be here with my brother showed that all my hard work paid off.”

Treece’s advice for underclassmen is to “get involved and get to know [the] staff, students, facility. The more connections you have the more blessing you have that may come your way. I got a scholarship just because I knew someone here on campus by putting myself out there and being visual.”

David’s advice for underclassmen is “to keep your end goal in mind, but don’t forget to have fun in college and make time for a healthy social life.”
