Webservices Graduate Fellow

Melissa Stone is a second year English Literature student in UNCW's English MA program. Her concentrations and interests are in children's & YA lit, graphic novels & comic books, feminist/queer lit, and postmodern lit; however, the Harry Potter book series is her all time favorite. Her Amortentia Potion would smell like old books, fresh gardinias, and dried lavender. She enjoys the company of her three pesky but lovable cats at her home in downtown Wilmington and loves to bake delicious treats for family and friends.

This '93 Toyota Corolla has a long history with WHQR.

It was once owned by our very own Jemila Ericson, former Classical Music and Midday Interview host, and her mother before that. About ten years ago, Jemila sold this beauty to Bill DiNome, a long-time WHQR supporter and a former member of WHQR's Community Advisory Board, for exactly $1. Now, Bill has donated this time-honored car to WHQR's vehicle donation program. Thank you, Bill!
