Krystle Davis takes new role with Marshall Foundation

MU grad is named program director of scholarships and donor relations

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Krystle Davis, event and building operations manager with the Marshall University Foundation since July 2009, has accepted the position of program director of scholarships and donor relations with the foundation.

Christine Anderson, assistant vice president for development with the foundation, said Davis starts her new job Friday, Feb. 15.

"I look forward to the personalized professionalism Krystle will bring to this very important position that serves our students and donors, along with the university and foundation family," Anderson said.

Davis, a 2007 and 2009 graduate of Marshall, has been the foundation's only building operations manager since the Marshall University Foundation Hall, home of the Erickson Alumni Center, opened three years ago. She scheduled and facilitated all events and took care of day-to-day responsibilities in the building.

Although her first official day on the new job is Friday, she won't be giving up her old duties just yet.

"I will be handling all MU Foundation Hall events until someone is in place," Davis said. "I will only be one floor away if they need any assistance."

In her new job, Davis will work in the development office, setting up scholarship guidelines and collaborating with financial aid in continuing to develop the processes in place with the hopes that more and more students will be assisted by scholarships," she said.

"One opportunity I'm looking forward to is helping the students in making connections with their donors and building those lifelong relationships," Davis said.
