Academic Coordinator

Why Sandy does this work:

Education is a powerful tool that transforms lives and perspectives. It enables people to see the world in new ways, unlocking potential and fostering personal growth. Because of this, I firmly believe that everyone has the right to educational development and the restoration of their humanity.


My name is Sandy Wilson, and I currently serve in the role of Academic Coordinator. I often refer to Charleston, SC when asked about my hometown, because my small town is not recognized on maps. I’m actually from a small town near Charleston, South Carolina named Honey Hill.

My professional life began with my service in the U.S. Army. Following my military service, I pursued and completed a B.S. Degree in Health and Human Performance from the University of Memphis, and later earned an MS in Education from Union University.

In my most recent role, I had the privilege of serving as a program manager at Communities in Schools of Memphis. Here, I dedicated myself to identifying and addressing barriers that could potentially cause students to drop out of school.

Beyond my career, I find great fulfillment in my role as a father to a lively young boy named Sandy IV, affectionately known as Seth, and as a loving husband to my wonderful wife, Cicely. Their unwavering support and love motivate me in my work and personal life.
