Students inducted into Wall Fellows program

Six Coastal Carolina University business students have been inducted into the Wall Fellows program, an 18-month program designed to prepare top business students for high-level careers in major U.S. and international corporations and organizations.

Students chosen to begin the program in spring 2001 are:

- Michelle Brown, a junior accounting major from Conway, - Ashley Elvington, a junior management major from Conway, - Paige Landry, a junior marketing major from Ontario, Canada, - Sarah Lockett, a junior finance major from Perth, Australia, - Boris Menier, a junior management major from Myrtle Beach, - Brian Piercy, a junior finance major from Gainesville, Va.

The Wall Fellows program was initiated in 1995 by the late E. Craig Wall Jr. in response to the need, expressed by the leaders of top U.S. corporations, for graduates with stronger leadership, critical thinking and interpersonal skills, according to William V. Woodson, director of the program.

The primary focus of the program is a three credit-hour per semester course which covers specific non-traditional areas including interpersonal skills, personal health and appearance, business and social etiquette and ethics, foreign languages, and cultural skills.

The course prepares the students for the highlight of the program: a series of internships and international experiences during their senior year. Since the program was initiated, Wall Fellows have had internships at major companies in New York, Atlanta, London, Barcelona and Santiago, Chile, as well as other metropolitan cities.

Coastal Carolina University is a public, comprehensive liberal arts institution offering baccalaureate degree programs in 38 major fields and six programs leading to the master's degree in education. Located nine miles west of Myrtle Beach, S.C., the campus is home to more than 4,600 students from 45 states and 43 countries.
