Exciting to meet new colleagues

And, it is especially exciting to meet new Coker College colleagues when one of them happens to be a former student. Walking into the Student Affairs building on Monday two people were coming down the stairs. "Speaking of the devil" one of them says as I light up with a greeting of my own. Lindsay Crighton, a former Coker student and communication major, was in the building -- her first day on the job as a new grant writer for Coker College. With Lindsay was Katherine (Katie) Dewey, a new athletic fund raiser with Coker. Katie is coming to Coker from Indiana and Lindsay is coming back to Coker from Virginia Tech, where she recently received her Masters in communication. Lindsay was my advisee while she was at Coker and it is really exciting to watch a former student as she embarks on her new career.

These two new colleagues are among a lot of new faces that will be part of the Coker College community as we officially begin the new semester this month. Their enthusiasm and excitement at coming to work in our Development Office portends great things for the ambitious growth plans of the college.
