Vicki Harrington M.B.A. '21
In times like these, inspirational stories like Vicki’s offer a great opportunity to reflect on the importance of scholarships and the ripple effect they can have, creating connections and building resilience across our campus and the Williamsburg community. Vicki came to William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business wanting to make an impact. In the pandemic, she found her opportunity. Along with classmate Cara Simpson M.B.A. ’21, Vicki established the CrimDell Small Business Network which connects the Mason School’s faculty, students and community volunteers with local businesses, providing them with free consulting in navigating COVID-related challenges. The result is a welcome relief for small business and a great real-world experience for W&M students. Developing this program would not have been possible without the scholarship Vicki received to attend William & Mary.
