Chowan University Announces Promotions
Chowan University is proud to announce the following promotions.
As of December 1, Brooke Reich has been promoted to Assistant Vice President for Development, a role she will fill while continuing to serve as Director of University Relations and Communications. Reich joined the Chowan University Office of Development in 2014 as Associate Director of University Relations and was promoted to Senior Development Director and Director of University Relations and Communications in 2016.
“Brooke brought a wealth of experience to Chowan and has demonstrated her ability to advance the Chowan brand very effectively both internally and externally,” stated John M. Tayloe, Vice President for Development. “As a proven leader of both projects and people, she was an obvious choice to assist me in leading the Development Office.”
The Texas native is a storyteller by nature as well as vocation, whose experience with brand strategy and deep love for Chowan students are evident in her work. Before finding her place in higher education at Chowan University, her career spanned from non-profit organizations to the biotech industry with one common thread – she has always been drawn to faith-based, missional endeavors. Under her leadership, University Relations has grown to a three-person department and expanded its reach and influence in both traditional and digital media.
“I fell in love with Chowan in no time at all,” Reich says. “The donors and friends, the faculty and staff, the students, and the Murfreesboro community have only grown dearer to me. It is both an honor and a pleasure to continue to share those stories with an ever-growing audience.”
Also announced today was the promotion of Nick Khoury to Director of the Annual Fund effective January 1, 2018. Khoury was a Summa Cum Laude graduate and Best All Around Student of Chowan University in 2014. He has served with distinction in the Admissions Office, most recently as Associate Director of Admissions, and will complete a Master of Business Administration degree in May at UNC Pembroke.
“Nick has always been one to watch,” said Tayloe. “First as a student and then professionally in service to the University’s mission. He aspires to excellence in all he does. Nick’s tenacity and creativity will help the University reach new goals in raising unrestricted gifts for the Chowan University Annual Fund.”
Khoury is a native of the Holy Land (Ramallah, Palestine) and although Murfreesboro has become his home, he enjoys sharing the love of his homeland and people with church groups, civic organizations, schools, and other gatherings.
“Choosing to attend Chowan was a major turning point in my life,” Khoury said. “I excelled as a student and was given the opportunity for employment after graduation. I am blessed that my career gives me the chance to bless others and thankful for the opportunity to take on a new challenge.”
Join us in congratulating Brooke Reich and Nick Khoury in their new roles.
