  • Leaving A Legacy: Melissa "Lissy" Wines '85

March 15, 2021

Lissy graduated Magna Cum Laude from Midway University in 1985 with an Associate Degree in Management: Equine Office Administration. She says she supports Midway University because it changed the entire trajectory of her life.

"Whatever I can do to further the mission of Midway is very important to me. I came from a disadvantaged family with really no hope of going to college. A truly chance encounter and my admissions counselor's follow-through allowed me to start a journey that I am truly grateful for. Not only did I thrive in the school environment, the teachers and staff made a huge impact on my life. I still look back to those days and those people and wonder what would have happened to me without them in my life. I thank Midway for the life I have today."
