Frances Wang ‘10, 2018 Master of Ceremonies
Check back for 2019 details in January 2019.
Accomplished Alum, Frances Wang ’10, will emcee St. Francis’ premiere event, Revelry Gala & Auction, “An Evening in Wonderland.” And according to Frances, you can’t miss this event! She brings a bundle of energy and a passion for all things St. Francis.
Currently working as a reporter for ABC10, Frances joined their team in October 2015. She’s always been the most talkative of her peers, so her former teachers and classmates aren’t surprised she became a reporter! Frances’ favorite part of her job is getting to know people she may not have met otherwise. She loves to tell stories about the amazing things people do for their communities – especially her Troubadour sisters (and boy does she have Lady Bird fever).
Prior to ABC10, Frances worked as a morning news reporter for KREM2 in Spokane, Washington, where she would cover breaking news one day and zip line through the mountains on live TV the next.
