January 2020 Appalachian Connections message
Message from Chancellor Sheri Everts
This week, classes resumed, and Appalachian is ready for another successful semester.
For our students, the achievements of our alumni — many of whom are profiled on our website — serve as inspiration, showing them the broad applications of an Appalachian degree.
- Jess Eatman ’13 holds Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics and sociology, with a concentration in applied research methods. She applies aspects of both her degrees in her work as an analytics manager for a team of report developers at a Fortune 500 health care company.
- Maleek Loyd ’18, who holds a B.S. in communication, electronic media/broadcasting, founded a Charlotte-based video production company with his two brothers. The siblings create promotional videos and documentaries for small businesses, nonprofits and corporate clients.
- Catrina Thompson ’09, a graduate of the Master of Public Administration program with a concentration in public management, serves as Winston-Salem’s chief of police and has implemented programs to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the local community.
To see Appalachian from a student perspective, visit the university’s Instagram account. Each week a new student “takes over” and shares his or her Appalachian Experience — your student might be featured next!
All the best in 2020.
