Gretchen Benton is the Manager, Learning Services Innovation for Center of Teaching and Learning and Learning Resources. Her passion for North Carolina higher education was sparked by completing an internship with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro Guarantee scholarship program while completing her B.A. in Theatre. With the program, for three years she served as a peer advisor for her fellow low-income high-achieving scholarship recipients by advising peers, facilitating student leadership challenges, and arranging student success workshops. She is currently enrolled in the Online Learning and Professional Development graduate program at Appalachian State. Her goal is to support employee and student use of ed-tech innovations to positively impact student success. When she is done with work and school for the day, you can find her bingeing episodes of baking shows and medical dramas on Netflix and Hulu
