Yolanda McLean named Associate Director of Financial Aid
Yolanda McLean says Winston-Salem State University feels like “home.” As the new Associate Director of Financial Aid at WSSU, she will lead the office's outreach efforts and serve as the point of contact for students in special populations like the band or athletic teams.
McLean has a passion for helping students. She says an experience working as an Upward Bound advisor at a high school led her to higher education. She has served in Financial Aid offices since 2004, helping students and parents understand the financial aid process.
While serving as the Assistant Director for Scholarships at UNC Greensboro, she managed over a thousand scholarship processes totaling approximately $7 million. In 2021, McLean began her tenure at WSSU as the Director of Business and Finance and Sports Administrator in the Department of Athletics.
