What is a legacy?
The dictionary definition of a Legacy is “ the long-lasting impact of particular events, actions, etc. that took place in the past, or of a person’s life.” The WCC uses the term “legacy” as we pass on the director position to a younger student to take over when the directors become seniors. The director or “leader” of the department is the person to go to whenever you are in need. When the time comes when the director will have to pass their position to a younger student, due to graduating, the director looks for a qualified, hard-working individual to take their place. These students will get recognized at the end of the year and will be called legacies. Throughout the next few months, the directors will teach their legacies the ins and outs of their departments. As we transition into a new semester, the legacies will officially take the place of the director and be the new leader. Nothing is ever guaranteed, so each student works hard to keep the legacy title or to maybe be considered for the next board of directors.
