Kaci Beatty

February 3, 2003 -- Kaci S. Beatty, a Jacksonville State University graduate and former alumni field representative, is JSU’s new director of Alumni Affairs.

Ms. Beatty will oversee all services and operations in support of the university’s more than 35,000 alumni. She will provide strategic direction and management for both the University’s alumni boards and chapters and their constituents. Her job will include organizing and revitalizing alumni chapters throughout the nation.

Other facets of her position include event planning, program development and fiscal responsibilities.

“One of the big things I want to do is work with our chapters and get those going again,” she said. “We want to get some alumni activities scheduled and get people involved.

“I also hope to get some people from JSU to go out and meet chapter members as well as bring chapter members back to campus. I will be traveling to meet with the chapters, and I’m hoping to meet with chapter presidents twice a year for planning and ideas.”

President Bill Meehan said, “Kaci’s ability to improve alumni service will be an asset to JSU. We’re confident that our alumni will see progress under Kaci’s leadership.”

Joe Serviss, vice president for institutional advancement, the division that has oversight of Alumni Affairs, noted that Ms. Beatty worked for five years as JSU’s alumni field representative, a position that gave her experience with groups and chapters throughout Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

In her letter of application, Ms. Beatty wrote, “My love for JSU is a lifetime connection, not just merely a working relationship. I am a life member of the alumni association. I am involved with several student organizations on campus. I want to be involved in the community.”

Now living in northwest Georgia, Ms. Beatty said she and her daughter, Abbie, 3, will be residing in Jacksonville soon.

A 1995 graduate of JSU with a degree in communication, Ms. Beatty is currently working on the Master of Public Administration degree at JSU and expects to graduate in spring 2004.

She is a member of the Gamecock Club, is a United Way volunteer and serves on the University’s Enrollment Management Committee.

Before joining JSU, Ms. Beatty worked for the technical division of CNN and was involved in control room activities during live broadcasts. “I want to hear from our alumni,” she said. “I want to hear their ideas. I hope they will call or send email.”

Ms. Beatty’s email address is kbeatty@jsu.edu, and she can be reached at 256-782-5405.
