|Whose Life Are You Changing?|
Tony Robbins, self-help author and motivational speaker, said, "By changing nothing, nothing changes."
Whose life are you trying to change? There are people around you every day whose life can be changed for the better with a college education. Please be an instrument of positive change for those persons and encourage them to consider enrolling for a degree program at Averett University (adult or high school student). Recruiting for Averett is as easy as forwarding a name, address and phone number to Dr. Stuart Jones, our vice president for enrollment management.
We want to share the story of the life you are trying to change, so please remember to email Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org about your efforts to change a life.
|Wilkerson Moving On|
After nearly eight years at the University, most recently as the director of annual giving programs, Joey Wilkerson '07 is leaving Averett at the end of the month. Wilkerson has accepted a position at Guilford College as their associate director of philanthropy.
Please drop by Alumni Hall from 9-11 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20 as we thank him for his tireless work on behalf of Averett and wish him well in the next chapter of his life.
A warm Averett welcome is extended to:
Jason Ferrell who joins the Aramark family as the North Campus grounds supervisor. Jason is a graduate of Virginia Tech where he majored in turf management.
"Jason's knowledge of turf management will enhance our grounds program," said Alonzo Jones, director of facilities. "We ask you to join us in welcoming Jason to campus."
