President, UNCP Alumni Association

“Passion is having the love for the university. Provision relates to giving back your time and resources and, lastly, remembering your purpose when you were a student and now as an alum.”

Peterkin, a loan compliance officer in Raleigh, would like to increase the association’s social media presence to keep alumni informed and engaged with the university.

“I have the title of president, but, for me, it’s all about teamwork and leaning on others for their strengths in certain areas. We want to continue the good work that has already been set in place.”
