For the second year, the Alum-a-Thon Virtual Fundraiser was held online and via mail, rather than by telephone. The fundraising total, as well as final standings, will be announced at the Homecoming event on October 24 and published here in the Spring. If you want to get involved for the 2016 Alum-A-Thon, contact Alyssa Fry at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (614) 234-3837.
In July, Jan Burkey, who had served the College as director of development for 13 years, retired. Jan raised much-needed funds for many scholarships and other initiatives, and we wish her well in retirement. Alyssa Fry, director of Institutional Advancement for the College, who most recently served with the Mount Carmel Foundation, joins the Office of College Relations to fill Jan’s role.
