Obtaining a higher education degree can be a daunting journey for many students, especially for first-generation college students.  However, when it comes to inspiring college students to graduate, Dr. Daniel O. Wilson’s mission and ultimate call in life is to see every student succeed academically.  The motto that Dr. Wilson lives by is: “changing futures, changing lives, one day at a time”.

Growing up as a first-generation college student, Dr. Wilson was blessed to start his academic journey at Louisburg College.  From the moment he stepped foot on campus, his life changed forever.  It was at Louisburg College where Dr. Wilson found his call to one-day help students like himself to succeed.  After graduating high school, Dr. Wilson earned a basketball scholarship to play at Louisburg College under the head coach of Enid Drake.  From there, he received another basketball scholarship at Longwood University in Farmville, VA., where he also obtained his Bachelor’s in Sociology.  It was at this point when it hit Dr. Wilson that his dream of playing in the NBA was only but a dream.  He then became serious about pursuing his call and passion in life—helping students to be academically successful.    

He then went on to earn his Master’s in Human Services at Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA, and a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago IL.  Dr. Wilson held true to his goal in life.  He came back to Louisburg College, only this time to start his career as an admissions counselor.  Dr. Wilson is currently serving as the Dean of Student Enrollment Services at Nash Community College and is currently an adjunct professor at Indiana Wesleyan University and The Chicago School of Professional Psychology teaching Doctoral candidates.  Through his continuous research efforts, it is his ultimate goal to make the world of higher education a better place where students may dream, thrive, and become tomorrow’s leaders.
