Madison Rose, Fellowship Coordinator

I'm Madison Rose, and I am a senior from Morganton, North Carolina.  I'm a Health and Exercise Science major with Chemistry and Biology minors.  I hope to become a dentist one day!  I really enjoy spending time with family and friends, dancing, hiking, fishing, and volunteering.  BSU is my home away from home, and I hope you will feel that way as well.  I look forward to seeing you at the many awesome BSU events throughout the year!


Kara Towery, President

Hey I'm Kara and I am a junior from Morganton, North Carolina!  I am an Anthropology major and I hope to pursue a career in medicine after undergrad.  Here at Wake, I am on the cheerleading team and I am also an RA in Collins!  I enjoy hiking, dancing, hanging out in the BSU lounge, or spending time with my family in my free time.   Maya Angelou once said, "The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned".  Since coming to Wake, I have felt most at home at BSU. BSU offers a welcoming and loving atmosphere, which I felt since I came to the first Horizons meeting.  I look forward to serving as the Fellowship Coordinator for the rest of the year and hopefully meeting some of you through Horizons, bible studies, or Sacred Cow.

Hi, I'm Abigail. I am a sophomore from Rockwell NC. I am a biology major, minoring in neuroscience. I'm trying my best to persue a career in the medical field, we'll see how that goes. But in the mean time, I love to listen to true crime podcasts, and watch criminal minds. I love BSU, it is honestly my favorite thing about Wake, and I hope to make it a home to many other people.

Imani Stewart, Pastoral Care Coordinator

Hey guys I'm Imani and I am from High Point, NC! I am a junior and a Health and Exercise Science major here at Wake with a double minor in chemistry and math (yes I really like numbers). I plan to pursue a career in medicine once I graduate and hopefully get into med school. Besides BSU, I am involved in Wake's Concert Choir, M.E. (musical empowerment), and work in the gym. I love to sing and spend most of my time outside of class listening to music, humming along, or straight belting it out  if I am alone...even when I'm studying. I also spend my free time playing and watching sports and go to almost every Wake sporting event I can. BSU has become another home here at Wake for me. We all have become a little family and I love being apart of this group, whether it's worshiping every week, or running around playing IM's with everyone. 

Caroline Boyce, Worship Coordinator

    Hey guys! My name is Caroline Boyce, and I am a senior from Tyner, North Carolina. I am an Accounting major in the business school and will be doing the MSA program next year.  At Wake, I am a part of BSU and a player, as well as Treasurer, for the Women's Club Basketball team. In my free time I like to play pick-up soccer or basketball, play the piano, and eat really tasty food. I love  BSU because I get to do all three of those things whether its playing on the IM team or worshipping and enjoying dinner at Horizons on Tuesdays.  I look forward to seeing everyone at BSU this year!

Reina Echevarria, Secretary/Treasurer

Hey Everyone!
My name is Rein. 

Sierra Browning, Summer Missions Coordinator 
Hey hey! I am a sophomore Health and Exercise Science major with a minor in religion and maybe something else---who knows.  I am a "townie," living in Winston-Salem my whole life, graduating from West Forsyth High School and cheering for the Demon Deacons since I was in the womb.  (I'm a second-generation Deac and BSUer.)  I have also attended Ardmore Baptist Church, learning, growing, making friends, preaching, and doing missions with such a wonderful body of believers.  Along with being involved in BSU, I am a student athletic trainer for the football team and am a member of the Anthony Aston Players, the theatre club on campus.  I enjoy reading, playing basketball, and cheering on the US Women's National Team.  I am also a HUGE Harry Potter fan, reading the entire series over 17 times.  This past year in BSU, I have engaged in fruitful religious discourse, spent way too much time in the lounge, and made some of my best friends.  I am excited to see where God leads the BSU and myself in this upcoming year!

Go Deacs!

Default bio for council members who don't write a bio:

The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy. My mother was a fifteen year old French llama seller named Chloe who had  webbed feet. My father would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons with Ludite ex-patriots who taught me to disdain writing my own bio for websites.  In the spring we'd make meat helmets, which has served me well in my complete domination of Kaitlin Mundy in every sport we've ever played. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really.
