The Power of Women: Felicia Wilson
Alabama A&M University Manager, Aramark Higher Education
Institutional success often comes down to the efforts of a few key individuals, and at Alabama A & M University (AAMU), Felicia Wilson is one of those. For more than 50 years, as General Manager for Aramark Dining Services at AAMU, she not only oversees the culinary needs of thousands of students, faculty and staff daily, but does so in a way that projects the university’s and Aramark’s commitment to providing the ultimate service to their students and the campus community.
Fifty years of success says a lot. From managing the dining needs of a growing student population to planning for major events, Wilson has seen and done it all. And as Alabama A & M grows in national stature, she has overseen culinary needs for the campus visits of U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and scores of American scholars, Nobel Laureates and entertainers. Recently, as one of the chairpersons of AAMU’s Celebrating 50 years of Making a Difference Banquet, a dream of Dr. Andrew Hugine, Jr., President, Wilson used her creativity and ideas from her staff and put together a show-stopping event.
In keeping with changing tastes in the hospitality industry, most recently, Wilson led the effort to establish the new cafeteria vegan line, which led to widespread favorable media coverage.
