Congratulations to Washington and Lee sophomore Timothy J. (TJ) Fisher, who has been named to the eight-member board of directors of Campus Pride. The national organization serves LGBT and ally student leaders and campus organizations in leadership development, support programs and services to create safer, more inclusive LGBT-friendly colleges and universities.
A Johnson Scholarship recipient from Potomac, Md., TJ is a double major in theater and history with a minor in museum studies. He's busy with numerous campus activities at W&L, serving as an admissions tour guide and appearing weekly on WLUR with his show, "Stacks of Wax with DJ TJ." He's the vice president of member development for the Virginia Epsilon chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon and has been involved in several theater productions.
TJ also is one of four student members of the University Committee on Inclusiveness and Campus Climate. This past summer, he participated in the Camp Pride summer leadership camp, which draws students from colleges and universities around the country. As a member of the board of Campus Pride, he'll serve as a liaison to the organization's Young Adult Advisory board, which helps chart the organization's future. He was one of two students named to the board in January.
We blogged about TJ last August, when he published a piece about his summer internship in the Washington Post Magazine about his work at Maryland's Glen Echo Park on the historic 1921 Dentzel Carousel. You can find our blog here, and he also described the internship for the "Sound Bite" section of the SigEp website.
