President: Alex Helms


Hey guys, my name is Alex Helms, I am a Junior, and I am your president for this year. I grew up in Boone NC. I am a engineering technology major and I love hiking to waterfalls and fly fishing. My favorite food is probably pizza and I’m much shorter than you think I would be. I love learning about God and getting into the bible, if you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask me.


Vice President and Community Service Coordinator: Scott Towne

Hi, I am Scott Towne, but that's Mr. Towne to you.  I am a computer science major and I probably am hacking you right now. Also, I am an eagle scout. I like the outdoors, especially hiking and camping.  I came to BSF because my sister said she'd break my arm if I didn't.  I like my arms unbroken. It makes playing the guitar for worship a tad easier.


Discipleship and Master Chef:  Darren Beebe


Howdy.  My name’s Darren Beebe.  I am a Boone, NC native.  I love the mountains and spending time outdoors, which led me to search for colleges in the western part of the state.  I found a home at WCU for its plethora of outdoor opportunities, the fact that it is not in my hometown, and the welcoming environment Baptist Student Fellowship provides.  I am a Senior, majoring in historyFor fun I like to fish, hike, camp, do just about anything outside, cook and eat good food, watch comedies and westerns on Netflix, and pull for the Carolina Panthers and the depressingly awful Atlanta Braves.  That about sums me up.  Welcome to BSF!  We are glad to have you and even more glad that you have chosen to pursue your relationship with Christ through fellowship with other believers during your time at WCU!

Webmaster/Social Media: Rachael Boyles  and Haley Yost


Hi! My name is Rachael Boyles and I am a sophomore here at WCU. I am a communication sciences and disorders major with an undecided minor and a plan to attend graduate school in Speech Language Pathology. I was born in Ohio, but have lived in Mooresville, NC for the past 7 years. I have a twin sister who attends App State. I enjoy attending church, being outdoors, mission work, drinking coffee, and hanging out with my crazy roommate Annie. 

 Hey everyone, I'm Haley Yost, I'm a sophomore Elementary Education major from Harrisburg, NC right outside of  Charlotte. I play trumpet.  I have a twin sister and before you ask No, she doesn't go to Western and I have a younger brother who plays tenor saxophone.  I have 4 cats, yes you read that right 4 cats. I personally really want a dog but my mom said no.  I'm part of the Pride of the Mountains marching band so on Saturdays come take note on what we do (pun on the show ;)) Fun Fact: I marched baritone last year. I came to BSF near the end of marching season last year and I'm thankful I did because I found my campus family who literally will always be there for me and you whenever . I really love photography, scrap booking, video making, Hamilton the musical, and just walking around campus in the fresh air.
