Twilley to Represent Wor-Wic on MHEC Council
November 03, 2006

Erin Twilley of Salisbury was recently selected to serve as the Wor-Wic Community College student representative to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) Student Advisory Council (SAC).

The SAC was established in 1988 by the Maryland General Assembly to provide a forum for students to voice their concerns, perspectives and experiences of college life to MHEC.

Twilley, who was home schooled, is a general studies major at Wor-Wic with a 4.0 GPA. She is a member of Wor-Wic’s Alpha Nu Omicron chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa national honor society, the arts club and the student-published newspaper, “The Wor-Wic Wave.” Twilley was one of five honors students from Wor-Wic selected to present a panel discussion on national health care at a recent National Collegiate Honors Council meeting.

A member of the Beth Israel Synagogue in Salisbury, Twilley is the head of the Mitzvah Corp., and assists with leading services at the synagogue entirely in Hebrew.

She registered thousands of judges at the 2003 annual convention of the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ) and assisted with the 2006 NAWJ Lifetime Achievement Award gala reception. She has also volunteered with the Healing Hands Animal Hospital in Salisbury and the histology laboratory at the Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Twilley plans to graduate from Wor-Wic in May and transfer to Salisbury University to major in chemistry. Her ultimate educational goal is to earn a doctorate in the field of veterinary medicine.

She is a daughter of Kevin and Penny Twilley of Salisbury. Her mother, as well as her grandmother, Joyce Groton of Salisbury, both graduated from Wor-Wic’s associate degree nursing program in the mid-1980s.
