This past week, 105.7 FM got in touch with Clover Quigley, HWS Class of 2015, to see what this esteemed WHWS alum has been up to!
“These days I am finishing my second year of service with Teach For America in Baton Rouge, Louisiana,” she told us via Facebook. “I’m also working on my master’s in Public Administration at Louisiana State University.”
As a student at Hobart and William Smith, Quigley studied Philosophy and Psychology. She also minored in French and, in addition to playing a major role at WHWS, was a Resident Assistant, Lead Teaching Fellow for Philosophy, and a member of the female a cappella group Three Miles Lost.
“If I were to describe myself in college, I’d say that I felt like I was busy all the time because I always kept myself occupied with all of the opportunities HWS had to give me,” Quigley wrote.
When asked about her time spent in the station, Quigley gushed. “I absolutely LOVED being a part of WHWS,” she wrote. “Every week I could come in and just chill in the studio with my music and share it with whoever wanted to listen. It really made me feel a part of something special.”
Her love for all things music has not faded since her college radio days, either. “Not much has changed,” Quigley told us. “I’m enjoying the long days and evenings and still bumpin the tunes any chance I get – especially on my long, long drive to work.”
“I think my time at WHWS has certainly influenced my career path!” Quigley also wrote. “Actually, I was sitting in the studio doing my show back when I first found out I had been accepted to Teach For America’s intern program my junior year. I still remember (secretly) dancing around the studio.”
In the coming months, Quigley hopes to continue teaching in Baton Rouge and finish her master’s degree. “I’ll come back north… eventually,” she teased. “Mardi Gras has my heart for now!”
