2023 Thirty Under 30

George Wilkerson


After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor of science in nursing from the University of Southern Mississippi in May 2022, George Wilkerson, Theta Alpha, began working in the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, seeing patients who had undergone neurological intervention, trauma to the brain and spinal cord, strokes and those with critical neurological diseases. His inspiration for his career path was his grandmother, who suffered a major stroke, as well as the excellent team of nurses who cared for her. While he now serves as a leader on the frontlines of healthcare each day, his first impactful leadership role came when he served as Theta Alpha treasurer. His responsibilities as treasurer taught him to communicate, negotiate and have difficult conversations, all contributing to his success in his current role. He holds the values of Pi Kappa Phi close to his heart, remaining loyal to each patient, holding himself accountable for his actions and words, continuing to further his knowledge through professional courses and working to always serve those around him 




George and his fellow Thirty Under 30 recipients will be honored at the 2023 Pi Kapp Alumni Reunion. Interested in joining us? Click here to learn more.
