Alumni Spotlight

Becca Stackhouse

Becca Stackhouse graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies and in Spring 2016, she graduated with her Master of Science in Family Studies.

She worked as the Day Camp Director at YMCA Camp Chandler in Wetumpka, Alabama, and received a position with the University of Georgia as a Family and Consumer Science (FACS) Extension Agent.

Stackhouse said, “I became a third generation Rotarian, writing a biweekly column in the local newspaper, appearing on the noonday show on the local television, and meeting key leaders in the community. The County Commissioners have signed two proclamations for FACS in Crisp County: March as Living Well Month, and May as Older Americans Month.”

UNA helped prepare her in being orderly and meeting deadlines with completed projects. Through her internships UNA, she learned how to be creative in the programming that is created to be delivered to the public.

She said, “UNA helped prepare me with my Certification to Family Life Education (CFLE) that I am going to be able to use by teaching Parenting Classes in the community. The CLFE encompasses my whole job. I never dreamed that the five years spent at UNA would prepare me in so many ways — both personally to professionally. I also developed skills of becoming friends with perfect strangers who soon would become lifelong friends.”

Five years from now she would love to be in Extension still working as an Agent in the field.
Becca said, “Students who are within the Interdisciplinary Studies Department are fortunate with a great Director, Dr. Craig Robertson. He cares about students, their course of study and influences the ability to be your best.”
