Wabash College has appointed Jacob Pactor director of the Schroeder Center For Career Development. He comes to Wabash after spending five years as an English teacher at Speedway High School and was chair and director of the school’s Drama Department. Pactor also serves as the Teacher in Residence for Teach Plus. He previously taught at Lawrence Central, North Central, and Warren Central high schools in Indianapolis. Pactor is a 2004 graduate of Wabash and will begin his leadership of the Career Center on January 3. Pactor earned a certificate in nonprofit management from Indiana University, a master’s degree in English from Butler University, and an MBA from the University of Indianapolis. In 2009, Pactor stepped away from teaching to work at City Year Chicago, where he served as civic engagement manager. In that position he led a five-person team, engaged 2,100 volunteers, managed 10 different projects, and led the “Illinois Dome Day” that brought together workers and volunteers of 15 organizations. Pactor has served Wabash as a class agent, and he is a four-time recipient of the Outstanding Class Agent award. He is also a former member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Wabash Men. The Princeton Review rated Wabash’s Schroeder Center the 8th best career center, and Wabash’s internship program and alumni network are both ranked in the top-10 nationally.
