Post High School:  Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from George Washington University (also attended the London School of Economics in 2011)

Currently: A Project leader for Electric Vehicles at Volkswagen of America – YouTube Video of Volkswagen at the LA Auto Show in 2013 (Wade’s part begins at 1:10)

What advice would you give to current students?
Think past the problems and challenges of today and tomorrow, and remember the big picture.

What is the best part about your career?
I love the reward aspect in the automotive industry. It takes about four years from the time a car is conceived to actually being manufactured. Seeing the final result is very satisfying.

What was the best class or activity you participated in at Holy Trinity?
I really enjoyed Mrs. Euziere’s American Military History, Pottery with Mrs. Rodby and Team Sports with Coach Phillips.

How did you become interested in your field?
An internship in the product strategy group at Volkswagen my senior year sealed the deal.
