Kristina Klaas '11
Kristina Klaas graduated from the Wilkes Honors College in 2011 with a concentration in International Studies and a minor in Spanish. During her years as a student, Kristina received various awards, including the Distinguished Community Service Award in 2010 and 2011, Owl of the Year – MacArthur Campus, and O’Hagan Scholar. The Honors College provided Kristina with the opportunity “to receive a highly personal and well-rounded education. Becoming involved in the Honors College is very easy to do and everyone is a part of the HC community and family. I would never have had the same experience at any other institution.”
Kristina worked as a Development Associate for Palm Beach Opera where she wrote grants, maintained all grant reporting, and assisted with donor relations and special events. She is currently working creating a major donor program for the Central Asia Institute in Bozeman, MT.
