Education Center Manager—Lee College

When he entered UHD as a transfer student in Fall 2011, he “wanted to quickly and efficiently complete his degree” which he did by taking 12 hours in Fall, Spring, Summer and Fall terms. Wesley graduated Fall 2012. 

In his senior portfolio, Wesley remarked that he “appreciates better now, that there is no short-cut on this journey through life. More importantly, it took each and every situation I have encountered to bring me to this accomplishment now. And NOW is the right TIME."

Wesley began his career in higher education administration at UHD in Spring 2013. Working in the Admissions Office, his talents were quickly recognized and he was promoted to the Coordinator of Admissions Recruitment here at the University of Houston-Downtown. He is moving forward in his career by accepting a new position at Lee College and he is also completing a graduate degree program in Administrative Leadership. 

As Wesley moves towards his next major opportunity, we wish him the best.
