Nominees and Statements of Interest

Franchesca Alford

Statement of Interest: I am honored to currently serve as a member and would love the opportunity to continue to represent the Classified Staff of WSU. I feel like we are just reaching the surface and change, unity, and inclusion is on the horizon. Raised as a Third Culture Kid, I breathe diversity and collaboration. I feel we are only as strong as our weakest link and collaboration makes us stronger. I am passionate about the WSU Community and like to help students and staff in whatever way I can to make their experience one they will remember. I have been privileged to host all types of guests from delegates from the Peace Accords to the future Raiders we will have in our presence very soon.  I love to give back to the community and am currently the Chair of The College of Business Staff Advisory committee. I have enjoyed watching the committee be able to assist in boosting morale and hear the concerns of our staff in RSCoB. It would be an honor to serve the classified staff.


Mia Honaker

Statement of Interest: I value CSAC’s efforts in advocating for classified staff, and I would welcome the opportunity to serve on the committee.  I have been with the university since 2005 and currently serve as the Interim Associate Director for the Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs.  My current role at Wright State has allowed me to expand my outreach and programming for students, and I would love to be able to do the same for our classified staff.  Thank you for considering me to represent you.    


Libertad Leon

Statement of Interest: I would like to serve on CSAC because I want to be part of the positive changes that together, we can accomplish by addressing the different issues facing the Classified staff. In addition, as a Latinx, I would like to be a representation of minorities in CSAC, as well as in this institution. Finally, I would like to see more people enjoying what they do, feeling valued and being well compensated for all they do for the Students, the Faculty and the rest of the Staff members at Wright State University.


Sheri Penwell

Statement of Interest: Being a current CSAC member, I have learned so much over the last 2 years.  I would like to continue to build upon that knowledge and become more productive on the advisory council.  I have been an employee at Wright State for 15 years, working in the Office of Disability Services for the last 9 years.  I have seen many changes during the time that I have worked on campus. I am hoping to continue to have a small part in shaping the future of our campus environment.


Ife Shafeek


Statement of Interest: I am interested in serving on CSAC to gain a better understanding of University policy and procedure so I can share what I learn with other classified staff and we can have some say in how changes may affect us.


Frances Terry

Statement of Interest: Being a member of the WSU CSAC would be a great honor.  As a learner, I'm eager to learn of all the different ways I can be a more productive member of this institution.  I hope to bring different insights in the facilitation of the CSAC mission.


Earl Thompson







Statement of Interest: I have been on CSAC before and enjoyed my time on the committee. I look forward to the opportunity, if elected, to serving the Wright State Community and giving positive feedback, ideas and working with others to helping to make the University a better place to work. 


Becca Webb

Statement of Interest: I would like to remain an advocate for classified staff, especially in this environment of unease and dissatisfaction.  I am involved in multiple areas on campus and can use that experience to best serve our constituency - compiling data, providing multiple perspectives, and helping admin see a larger picture of what classified staff do and need at Wright State in order to thrive, personally and professionally.
