Meet Our Team
Alumni programming at Armstrong is led by the Director of Alumni Development in consultation with the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors. The Director also works closely with key departments across campus to offer a variety of programs and services—these include Career Services, Enrollment Services, Athletics, Student Life, and the Academic Colleges. The Director is a member of the Advancement Division, under the leadership of Vice President Bill Kelso.
Members of the Board of Directors are nominated by other alumni, then recommended by the Nominating Committee, and then confirmed by the current Board. Board members may serve two three-year terms. There are at least 18 but no more than 30 Board members, not including ex officio members. Past Board Presidents, the President of the Student Government Association, and the President of the Graduate Student Coordinating Council may serve as nonvoting ex officio members.
Meet the Director of Alumni Development
Cheryl Anderson joined the Armstrong team in August 2012. Since her arrival, she has made it a priority to talk with alumni across the Southeast and beyond in order to gain a broad perspective on the future direction of alumni programming. In Spring 2013, she and the Board of Directors are developing a strategic plan based on the information she has gathered.
Cheryl previously held a series of positions at Kennesaw State University for 16 years, where she established the professional arts box office, created an alumni magazine, implemented a donor recognition program, and instituted the annual Flourish Awards program. She concluded her KSU career as director of public relations and director of development for the College of the Arts. Prior to her work at KSU, she served as the program coordinator for MidSummer Macon, a nonprofit arts education program, and the Center for the Arts at Wesleyan College in Macon, Ga.
Anderson earned a Master of Arts degree in professional writing from KSU and a Bachelor of Arts degree in international relations from Wesleyan College, where she was a presidential scholar. She also enjoyed an incredible study-abroad experience at the International Summer School at the University of Oslo in Norway, thanks to a scholarship from Rotary International. Raised in an Air Force family, she has lived in five states and the Panama Canal Zone. She is a graduate of Savannah High School.
