After running the surf club for two and a half years, Jamie Wylam will graduate this upcoming December with a degree in business administration and a minor in public relations and advertising. She helped the surf club and team gain more respect on and off campus by putting everything she had into each. She is currently working out a deal with Pit Surf Shop to help sponsor the club/team, which is soon to come. She wants surfers to take an active role in the club/team and get as involved as possible, that way the they can continue to flourish even after she is gone.
Hometown: Winter Park, FL
Sponsors: Pit Surf Shop, Clint Richardson, and God
What are your plans for after graduation? Plan to work in pharmaceuticals in the St. Augustine/Jacksonville area. Also will continue surfing and do some traveling.
How was your time at Flagler? It was a great experience. I got to meet a lot of influential and inspiring people and I had a lot of fun.
Favorite memory from Flagler? Having the Flagler Surf Team 1st in our region last year along with myself at 4th in Women’s.
What did you learn from running the club? Patience and hard work always pays off.
What events did you run for the club throughout the years? The 1st annual student vs. faculty surf slaughter last year. All
of the proceeds of this contest went to the St. Francis House. Also ran two other contests and last year got to take the team to Nationals out in Salt Creek, Calif.
Any advice you want to leave behind for others? Never take your eye of the goals you have in life. Don’t be afraid to let people help you along the way to reach those goals. And make the best of it, because you only get one shot.
