Turk Assumes Annual Giving Responsibilities

RADFORD -- In addition to her duties as director of alumni relations, Laura Turk '87, MS '90, has been appointed the executive director of the annual fund at Radford University. While continuing to develop and implement strategies for alumni engagement and participation, Turk will now be responsible for the planning and execution of the university's comprehensive annual giving program.

Working with a team of professional staff and volunteers, Turk will develop and implement strategies designed to increase total annual giving and participation from alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends of the university. She will provide leadership for university advancement programs such as the Phonathon, the Parents’ Executive Council, the Arts Council, and other annual giving programs designed to serve various university constituencies.

“As a two-time Radford University graduate and long-time RU employee, I have witnessed firsthand how private support can benefit our wonderful institution,” said Turk. “It is easy for me to be passionate about asking people to be engaged on many levels because I truly believe in Radford’s rich past and its future potential.”

Prior to her position in alumni relations, Turk was the director of corporate, foundation, and college development for the university.
