Champlain View Fall 2012
The fall issue of the Champlain View, a magazine for alumni, parents and friends of Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont.
Meet the New Alumni Relations Director Hannah K. Campbell joined Champlain College this fall as the new alumni relations director. She is thrilled to be part of the Champlain community and is eager to connect with as many Champlain alumni as possible. “I am impressed with the vibrancy, passion, innovation, and enthusiasm. Alumni are an integral part of the College’s history and of its future, and I look forward to working together in the many years to come,” she said. An eighth-generation Vermonter, Campbell was born in Burlington and graduated from Burlington High School in 2001. Her father is a small business owner, and her brother has coached baseball in Burlington for many years. After college in New Hampshire and six years in New York City, she is happy to finally be home again. She comes to Champlain from two institutions with outstanding alumni programs: Cambridge University (U.K.) and Cornell Medical College. These experiences provided her with a strong foundation from which she could draw to strengthen and expand Champlain’s alumni program. “You can expect a continuation of many beloved Champlain traditions, as well as new and exciting events for alumni,” she added. “As a Champlain graduate, you are a vital resource for our current students as they complete their educations and begin their careers. There will be frequent opportunities to mentor and engage with them so that we can be true to our mission of providing a comprehensive, innovative, and purposeful education for every graduate.” Campbell can be reached at (802) 860-2747 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
