How Sweet it is... to be a WVU Business Alumna

It is 2015 and a young woman sits in her high school classroom in Willoughby, Ohio, thinking about her college plans. Friends to her left talk about Case Western Reserve University, while friends to her right chat about the University of Cincinnati. It’s almost Halloween and she reaches in her pocket for a mini–Almond Joy candy bar. She eats it and thinks, “maybe biomedical engineering and a career in prosthetics” would do.

Leaving her own Mark

For many students, WVU feels like family. For Amaya Gray, it is family. Gray’s grandfather, Ken Gray, may have founded the long-standing program WVUp All Night (which hosts events and activities for students as an alternative to the bar scene), but Gray is leaving her own mark as a Mountaineer. She’s been part of the Career Readiness Program with our in-house Center for Career Development, served as a Peer Mentor for incoming freshmen in BCOR 191 and a Chambers College Ambassador, has been a member of the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF) with Naomi Boyd, and founded Students of Color in Business with the help of Susan Lantz. “Students of Color in Business is geared towards business students and business minors, as well as any student who wants to be an entrepreneur or learn more about business,” Gray said.
