Having worked professionally with Wesley for several years, Vaughan added, “Wesley is talented, hardworking and creative, and can motivate others through his enthusiasm and positive attitude. Having enjoyed my time at university over the past five months, I feel that Haley will be a great fit and that she and her family will love being part of the Bethany family and the Lindsborg community.
Wesley earned a BFA in Graphic Design in 2003 from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and is currently pursuing an MBA with a major in Marketing from Santa Clara University.
