“Alumni Connections,” November 2009: Meet the IUP Alumni Affairs Staff

As a member of the IUP Alumni Association, you will always be a part of the IUP family! So at this time of year, when our thoughts begin to turn to family and friends, I thought it was appropriate to introduce you to the staff members representing your IUP Alumni Association.

IUP Alumni Relations Staff Members

Mary Morgan ’91, associate director (second from right): Mary is a 1991 graduate of IUP with a degree in Business Management. She has been with the IUP Alumni Association for thirteen years.

Her undergraduate degree is in Special Education and her master’s degree is in Student Affairs in Higher Education. Sara is another familiar face at alumni events, as her primary responsibilities include planning events for IUP on the Road and supervising the IUP Ambassadors, the student alumni association.

Elaine Berringerr ’06 (far left): Elaine is a 2006 IUP graduate with a degree in Business Management. She has been with the IUP Alumni Association for seventeen years.

As the executive director of the IUP Alumni Association (center), I work closely with the IUP Alumni Association Board of Directors to guide the association’s strategic plan. In addition, I work with IUP on the Road events and reunions. I graduated from IUP with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in marketing and marketing education, and I have been with the IUP Alumni Association for twenty years.

Without a doubt, we all enjoy working with IUP alumni, and we look forward to hearing from you! On behalf of the IUP Alumni Relations staff, we wish you a very happy holiday season!
