Hello Everyone! My name is Will Bickers and I’m originally from Havelock, North Carolina. However, I now call the beautiful town of Carrollton, KY my home for the past ten years. I’m a proud graduate from the University of Kentucky in May 2010. I received a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and completed three minors in Communication, History, and Geography. Being a very social person by nature I immersed myself in all that UK had to offer. I was involved in several student organizations such as: DanceBlue, Relay for Life, Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity, F.U.S.I.O.N (an acronym standing for: For Unity and Service In Our Neighborhood), among several others. In addition to being highly involved I took on the role of a student worker. During my time as an undergrad I established myself as a UK Tour Guide and a Summer Advising Wildcat Assistant. These positions helped me realize my passion for this amazing “See Blue” community eventually guiding me toward being a UK Recruiter.

My travel territories include the Greater Chicago, Illinois area. I may not be a native Kentuckian but I love this state and University as much as any other member of the BIG BLUE NATION! I am very excited to continue my journey through wildcat country and help you realize the potential here at the University of Kentucky! GO CATS! email: william.bickers@uky.edu

Monica Wade (859) 257-1695

Hello! My name is Monica Wade; I was an Army brat for most of my life but am now happy to call the Bluegrass State my home! I finished my B.A. in Journalism from UK in May 2009 and continued on to achieve my Masters of Management from Sullivan University in June 2012.  My undergraduate experience at UK was fun-filled and provided both academic and life lessons that have sculpted me in to the person I am today! Many campus offerings appealed to my social and creative ambitions and I frequented gallery exhibits, drama productions and musical offerings at the Singletary Center for the Arts, Guignol Theatre, and UK Art Museum. When I wasn’t working one of my many off-campus jobs I loved catching a new release with friends at the Worsham Theater in the Student Center and could also be found spending many hours studying (and socializing) at the William T. Young Library (Willie T!).  I am happy to once again be on campus and travelling to help others SEE BLUE!

 

My territories include Missouri and Southern Illinois. Illinois counties are Pike, Morgan, Sangamon, Macon, Moultrie, Douglas, Edgar and below.  Please contact me should you have any questions about the University of Kentucky, I look forward to hearing from you! GO CATS! email: monica.wade@uky.edu

Hi Everyone! My name is Lindsey Booth and I am from Vinton, Virginia in the beautiful Roanoke Valley.  I am a very proud and recent 2013 graduate of the University of Kentucky. I found that my time in undergrad was filled with endless opportunities that expanded my knowledge, helped me to set and reach goals, and also prepared me professionally for my future.
