"Albion is my home! What better way to give back to this wonderful community than interning with community leaders who are committed to improving the economics and quality of life right here in Albion?" That enthusiasm and dedication is typical of Mallory Ayotte, a first-year student at Albion College and the newest Albion Community Intern, named through the College's Gerald R. Ford Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service.
Albion College President Donna Randall has announced she will conclude her presidency at the end of her six-year term on June 30. The Board of Trustees has asked Randall to continue on as the College's chancellor through June 30, 2014. The board is actively recruiting an interim president for the 2013-14 academic year and is launching a national search for the College's 16th president.
As chancellor, Randall will focus on three critical areas: fundraising for the library and athletic complex renovations, development of educational partnerships, and national advocacy.
An all-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association and all-region performer in cross country, Albion College senior Amanda Weaver always aims to reach the finish line as quickly as possible. The speedy process of landing a place in her top choice for graduate school – from completing the application in January to interviewing and accepting in February – was surprising even by her standards.
A Marshall product, Weaver has confirmed her acceptance to the clinical exercise physiology program at Ball State University. She will be just one of six students accepted into the program out of a pool of 50 applicants, and she is on track for a career in cardiac rehabilitation.
After four years as Albion College's associate vice president for development, Shannon Duvall will depart Albion effective April 17 to become New College of Florida's next Vice President for Advancement and Executive Director of the New College Foundation.
At Albion, Duvall has been responsible for major and planned giving, annual giving, corporate and foundation relations, prospect management and research, and staff development and training.
Albion College launched its redesigned website March 22, featuring a new look, improved navigation, and more interactive content than ever before.
"This website upgrade is the crowning piece in the development of new branding for Albion College," said John Thompson, Albion's associate vice president for marketing. "We believe it offers a wealth of information about Albion in an easy-to-use format and a first-rate visitor experience overall."
Distinguished Albion alumni Sherry Penney, '59, shares her expertise on "Next Generation Leadership" with a presentation Wednesday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in Norris Science Center Room 104. Penney's visit to Albion is a highlight event of the College's Women's History month celebration.
