New Faces in Residence Life

As Wilkes gets ready to begin a new year with new and exciting challenges on the horizon, The Office of Residence Life wishes to introduce you to some individuals who have recently joined the team.

Please join us in welcoming Alex Reynolds, Joanne Powser and Kedene Clarke to the Wilkes Community and to the Office of Residence Life! Alex and Joanne serve as Area Coordinators for the department. Each is responsible for the supervision and mentorship of the RA staff, the supervision of a graduate student and the direct oversite of the residential communities. Alex oversees the First-Year areas, which includes our FYF Living Learning Communities, as well as the north side mansions. Alex’s grad assistant partner is Kedene Clarke. Joanne oversees the upper-class housing areas, which includes our Honors-designated housing, as well as the south side residential facilities. Joanne’s grad assistant partner is Danah Lassiter. We also have an incredible team of 40 dedicated RAs joining us in one week.

Alex and Joanne both join us from Bloomsburg University. Kedene joins us from Seton Hall University. Debbie Scheibler, Ray FeDora, Roberta Shaffer and Danah Lassiter continue in their roles as Director, Assistant Director, Office Manager, and Graduate Assistant.

If you have any questions regarding the residential facilities, the accommodations we provide, staffing, residential student programming, Living Learning Communities or collaborative opportunities, we welcome your outreach out: 408-4350 or reslife@wilkes.edu. The Office of Residence Life team looks forward to working with you all this academic year. Cheers to a great Fall 2018!
