Jessica Whitmore

Jessica Whitmore, C'16, is a member of our Mount community who has pursued excellence in all that she has applied herself to: in academics, athletics, and serving our university in the Mount Archives.  

Jessica graduated from the Mount with a B.A.in History and German. As an undergrad, she was a member of the George H. Miles Honors Society, participated in the study abroad program in Salzburg, Austria, and was a captain of the Track & Field team. On the track, Jessica was the 2014 NEC Champion in the 60m dash, an event in which she still holds the school record. Also in 2014, she began to intern in the Mount Archives, a role that would become her career.

Since graduating, Jessica has earned her M.S. in Information and Library Science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Higher Education Leadership from Concordia University Chicago. This Fall, Jessica gave a lecture at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Jessica currently serves the Mount community as Interim Library Director and University Archivist. In December of 2017, Jessica helped to secure a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to help preserve our library’s significant historical and cultural collections. Jessica credits her Mount education with her ability to take on these exciting challenges.

Congratulations Jessica on your accomplishments, and thank you for your service to our Mount community!
