A native of Troy, NC, Chris Peterkin is humbled to be the Alumni Association President and is committed to strengthening the bond between the university and alumni. His objectives and goals during his tenure of office will be three-pronged – passion, provision and purpose.

“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.”
