Program Coordinator for Guardian Scholars — Dejon Weldon

DejonDejon is a community college aluma and a big believer that everyone has their own educational path. As a first general college student, she did a lot of exploration to figure out “College Systems” on her own. After receiving her associate degree she continued on to Italy where she was able to complete her Bachelors in Art History with the chance to study Van Gogh and Picasso in their home countries. If you ever want to talk about study abroad, she’s happy to talk about how it changed her perspectives on life. With her 13+ years of experience working in higher education she hopes to share her personal and professional experience with students to help them become empowered and advocates of their own educational goals. As the Guardian Scholars Program coordinator, Dejon’s main goal is to make sure students are connected to campus and community resources.
