UNCG Gerontology Students

Meet several of our current students who have given permission to share their interests.

Leslie Harris

Leslie Harris

Leslie Harris “recently graduated from UNCG with a B.A. in Psychology and minor in American Sign Language. As a C.N.A. I have worked with older adults over the past five years and hope to work in administration within long term care in the future. I also have interests in dementia and Alzheimer’s. I look forward to expanding my knowledge of gerontology." While still a Gerontology Masters Degree student, in November 2015, Leslie earned a position as Department Coordinator for Well-Spring Home Care.

Holly Sluder

Holly Sluder graduated from Appalachian State University in 2010 with a degree in Sociology. "I then wondered what to do with my life for the past four years. Thankfully, I landed in this awesome Gerontology program and look forward to learning all I can about the aging population! I hope to one day work in a non-profit setting that helps older folks. I love to read, hike, and cook."
