Dear Friend of the School of Dentistry:

I am pleased to introduce Sarah Andrews as the new Assistant Director of Development for the School of Dentistry. Andrews, who grew up in Chapel Hill, will plan and execute a comprehensive annual fund program, directing direct-mail, web-based and phonathon campaigns to increase Dean’s Club membership; and will raise unrestricted funds for the school and its departments, student aid and faculty support funds, class gifts and capital projects. She will also serve as executive director of the Dental Alumni Association and will plan Office of Advancement events.

Andrews most recently was assistant director for gift planning operations within the Office of University Development. She managed life income programs, the Charles Gerrard Legacy Society, the biannual Carolina Living Legends meeting, and marketing and stewardship initiatives, among other responsibilities. Before joining University Development in 2007, she was a planned giving assistant with the UNC Center for Public Television. She received her bachelor of arts degree in sociology and justice and policy studies in 2001 from Guilford College and was a Presidential Scholar from 1997 to 2001. She also received her master of public administration degree from James Madison University in 2003.

Remember, the deadline for registration for our Dental Alumni Day is this Friday, October 1. Dental Alumni Day is Saturday, October 30. We’ll gather for barbecue and all the fixin’s at Top of the Hill 2 ½ hours prior to kickoff of the Carolina versus William and Mary football game. The Tar Heels traveled to Piscataway, NJ, last weekend and defeated the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, so let’s hope the Heels will be riding a long winning streak when the Tribe comes to town. Please complete this registration form and return it to our office (UNC Dental Alumni Association, Campus Box 7451, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-7451) by this Friday, October 1.

The School’s Dean’s Club Dinner is scheduled for Friday, November 5 at the Carolina Inn. Dean’s Club members (anyone who has contributed $1,000 or more to the School in 2010) are invited to the event. This year’s speaker is Freddie Kiger, the popular General Alumni Association lecturer and Tar Heel Sports Network and ESPN statistician.
