Congratulations to Ashley Hawkins Parham (M.A. ‘12) on being awarded the 2022 Martin Luther King Jr. “Building the Dream” Award.
Building the Dream awards are traditionally presented to a professor or administrator and a student from Wake Forest and Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) who exemplify King’s qualities and promote diversity within the community.
Ashley is the WFU Wellbeing Program Manager.
“She leads with integrity, honesty, humor and always, always intends to be fair,” according to her nominator. “She values personal growth and is always willing to lend a helping hand to her team, students and campus partners. Ashley is intentionally inclusive in her day-to-day interactions and work. She takes care to center the most marginalized and is always willing to use her privilege to speak up in times of injustice, discrmination or bias.”
