☀️Senior Spotlight ☀️
Mayden has always been a true and loyal member of ACE. We loved how hard she worked, not just for us but for everything she did, and how much she was willing to do for the team. She was an ideal ACE member! We’re going to miss having her around to brighten our days! Mayden will be graduating in May with a degree in Mass Communication.
“Later this year, I will be moving to Hendersonville to participate in Blue Ridge Service Corps. This program will allow me to devote a year of my life to volunteering and serving in areas of Western North Carolina; the place where I was born and raised and am proud to call home. “ -Mayden ❤️❤️
☀️ Senior Spotlight ☀️ VP of External Affairs, Julia Quigley! If you’ve ever DM’d us on social media or won an ACE Fun Box, chances are you were talking to her! Julia is graduating with a BA in New Media and Painting. She’s been with ACE since her freshmen year and has had 3 leadership roles in ACE. We’re going to miss her fun style and artistic skills! After graduation, Julia plans to work in the graphic design field.
“I’ve loved every second of ACE. From my first job as a sophomore, to the rebrand, to winning homecoming, and everything in between. I’ve made lifelong friendships here and can’t wait to see the amazing stuff they do in the future. Thank you! “
☀️ Senior Spotlight ☀️ Director of Community! Elizabeth Berkeley! Eliza has been with ACE since her freshmen year when it was known as Underdog Productions! She’s a true OG. We’re going to miss her amazing work ethic and her incredible friendship. Eliza is graduating with a bachelor of science in business management degree and plans to find a job in the entertainment industry.
“ACE has been a big part of my college life since freshman year. The memories and friendships I’ve made will last forever and I can’t wait to see what more gets done in the future. ACE will always hold a special place in my heart and I couldnt be more thankful to be apart of this org. ❤️” -Eliza
☀️Senior Spotlight ☀️
Today goes out to ACE Vice President, Josh McCormack! Josh joined ACE in 2018 as Director of Cinemas and then moved up to VP this past year. We’re going to miss his fun Monday night meetings and how he made everyone feel better when they were having a bad day. Josh is graduating with a degree in Mass Communications and a minor in New Media. After college he hopes to continue to do freelance writing and then plans on going to grad school to become a film professor!
“Having joined ACE my junior year, I felt like I had finally found my people after three years of searching. What began as a fun job where I got to choose what movies to show on campus became my safe space where I could be comfortable with being myself in front of a group of people I fell in love with. As I began my senior year as VP, that bond with both the exec members and general members of ACE only grew stronger and even when schoolwork continues to wear me out (even now), I know I’d always have a plACE in ACE.” -Josh
In honor of what would have been Lawn Party today, our ☀️Senior Spotlight☀️ goes to President KG Brake! KG has been with ACE since her sophomore year. She’s held the roles of VP and President! We love her for all the work that’s she’s done for ACE and will miss her tree facts and wonderful positive attitude ❤️
After graduation KG hopes to go into environmental conservation and/or restoration. She’d like to travel and work in the field to protect our planet, but she will miss UNCA and all her memories. She says, “Thanks for everything!” ✌🏻
ACE would like to take our next couple of posts to say goodbye to some special members! Up first is ACE advisor, Keith Norris. Keith has worked with ACE since 2018 and loved working with and supporting the students he supervised. Keith was always a friendly face in Highsmith and brought joy to every student he met. We will miss him greatly but are so excited for his next journey at Duke University, where he will be a Student Development Coordinator.
Here’s a short message from him 💕
“Thank you for taking me in and accepting me, UNC Asheville. Thank you for embracing my flaws and imperfections, cheering my team on, and going on this journey with me. The moments I spent with the students here are the memories I will forever cherish. Don’t be a stranger, though! Follow me (@norrisrk) and let’s stay in touch! Much love to all of you, Bulldogs. 💙”
ACE misses you. We hope you’ve enjoyed receiving your stuff a plush! Tag someone who you miss going to events with. We miss collaborating with @bsa_unca !
