Alumni Update: David Willis

We recently reached out to our alumni to ask where are they now, as we look forward to Homecoming and seeing many alums at our open house next month. We have several stories to share and we start with David Willis.Alum David Willis

“After graduating, I moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, living in a “favela” area and working with a missionary group that helps at-risk children and youth. Then I spent a school year in Argentina through the Fulbright Program (thanks to the help and encouragement of the Wake Forest Scholars Program), helping teach college-level English and serving as a cultural ambassador in a small town there.

I currently teach AP Spanish Language & Culture and other Spanish courses as chair of the World Languages Department at Cape Henry Collegiate School. I have had the opportunity to take groups of students to Guatemala and Panama for cultural and language exchange programs. I am also the music director for my church, Iglesia Bautista del Camino, which holds services in Spanish. I have had the chance to spend time in 15 Spanish-speaking countries and hope to make it to the rest in the future.”
