Alyssa Stewart currently serves as the assistant registrar at Lenoir-Rhyne. She enjoys working closely with the faculty, staff and athletic department to help ensure the students are successful during their time at LR. A highlight is being able to work with students in the First Year Experience course.

She joined enrollment management in 2011 as coordinator of enrollment services, became a first-year advisor for a short time and moved to her current role in the registrar's office in 2017. During her undergraduate years, Stewart spent a semester studying abroad at the University of Harlaxton in Grantham, England. Before coming to LR, Stewart was an elementary school teacher. She ended her 11 years of teaching at Ray Childers Elementary.

Stewart's ties to LR are strong. Her paternal great-grandparents, Verley Lorenzo Fulmer and Edith Propst Shell, both attended Lenoir College (now Lenoir-Rhyne) in the early 1900s. Verley graduated in 1912 and graduated from Southern Seminary (now Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary) in 1913. Edith attended Lenoir College from 1910 to 1912. They were the first in a long list of Lenoir-Rhyne Bears.
