Associate Director, Appalachian Center for Civic Life Appalachian Center for Civic Life

I attended Emory & Henry College as a first generation college student from Galax, VA and was a Bonner Scholar. Immediately upon graduation, I worked for two years in the College’s Office of Admissions and, after that, as the Coordinator of the Bonner Scholars Program. From 2004-2018, I worked mostly in the academic publishing industry and maintained strong ties to Emory & Henry, including serving as a member and president of the Alumni Association Board of Directors. Upon completion of my Master’s of Science degree in Information Science, I returned to the College as Associate Director of the Appalachian Center for Civic Life. My work here involves a significant portion of the overall mission of the Center, including teaching in the Civic Innovation and MCOL programs as well as overseeing and assisting with a number of student projects. I live with my wife, Felicia, who is also a graduate of the College, and our daughter, Madeline, a high school student, on a small farm just over the hill from campus and am involved in a number of community organizations in our area.
