Graduating from college is typically paired with an uneasy feeling of not knowing exactly where the next step may lead. However, senior business and accounting major Nataleigh Kerr has utilized the resources at Westminster College to make her transition in May one that will be filled with confidence in a successful future.
By combining academics, service and community at Westminster, Nataleigh mastered her abilities to speak, write, analyze and make impactful differences on a global scale. She serves as the treasurer of the Student Government Association, Student Alumni Association and her sorority, Alpha Gamma Delta. She is also the president of Enactus, a business-oriented service organization.
“Enactus has allowed me to experience the importance of incorporating a service-minded approach within a business,” she said. “It is important to me to align my personal values with my professional career, and being a part of Enactus has given me the tools to find a need and utilize entrepreneurial skills to help solve problems and promote sustainability.”
Nataleigh chose business and accounting for the flexibility that the disciplines allowed. This way, she will be able to use her skillsets anywhere long term—whether it’s for her family’s business or a Fortune 500 company. After graduation, Nataleigh will start studying and testing to become a Certified Public Accountant and will start her career as an Assurance Associate for Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Pittsburgh next Fall.
Regardless of what the future holds, Westminster College has been a vital part of developing Nataleigh and what her future will look like.
“I now have a strong care for the importance of a community and how we can all do our best to support one another, which is vital wherever life may take me,” she said. “My favorite thing about Westminster is the genuine compassion and connection that is shared between everyone on this campus.”
Nataleigh will graduate in the spring with a feeling of accomplishment and pride for both herself and her alma mater. She looks forward to being an active alum at the college she chose to attend just four years ago.
“Rather than choosing to come to a college, I was choosing to come home.”
