New staff member works
with students, alumni


Brittain Cheek, a 2001 Elon graduate in corporate communications, has joined the School of Communications as director of student support and alumni outreach.

Cheek will manage student records and advising files in addition to handling alumni relations for the School of Communications. Her office is located in the former "green room" across the hall from the internship director's office.

"This new position is important in meeting national accreditation expectations, and our own expectations, related to student support and alumni outreach," said Dean Paul Parsons. "Brittain will monitor each student's curriculum for graduation and accreditation compliance, identify and assist top students in applying for awards and scholarships, be the staff liaison for communications students in living/learning communities on campus, monitor minority student recruitment and retention, systematically inform students of school activities and policies, conduct a census of our 2,000 journalism and communications alumni, and organize an annual Homecoming event for our alumni."

Cheek has worked the past eight years in the human resources division of Cessna Aircraft Co. in Greensboro. She earned a management certificate at Duke in 2002, and currently is in an online master's degree program through Western Carolina University.
