Sometimes plans, people, and circumstances change and we need to adapt. Our Executive Director Emily Burner will be leaving Shenandoah University and joining the Valley Health Foundation as the Senior Director of Development. Her last day with SU will be Tuesday, January 4.
Emily has a long and successful tenure with the university, serving in various capacities for the past 14 years. She began her SU career in the athletics department and moved to OMC to work as the Director of Communications, a position she held for six years. Emily was promoted to Executive Director of Alumni Affairs, a role in which she excelled once again. She became an “official alumna” when she earned her D. Prof degree in 2016. While we will miss Emily we are grateful that we will reap the rewards of her work in our community. The University expects to launch a search in the next several weeks.
I hope the joy of the holidays and the new year bring you light and love in the ways you celebrate with the people you love and the traditions you hold dear.
Wishing each of you a lovely holiday season,
President, SU Alumni Association
