“I am excited to join such a talented and passionate marketing team here at N.C. Wesleyan College. After my involvement with rebranding and watching the enormous growth over the last several years, I’m excited to be part of Dr. Clark’s vision and the continued success of the college. I look forward to working with students, faculty and staff here at Wesleyan.” stated Frye.
