The Office of Alumni Engagement will pilot alumni chapters in Atlanta and Charlotte over the next two years. This will give us an opportunity to develop a standard for more alumni chapters to form in the future. Our hope is that by opening alumni chapters, it will make it easier for alumni to feel connected to LR while living outside the Hickory area.
The Alumni Association is here to promote fellowship and community among alumni, as well as build, maintain and enhance the relationship between LR and its alumni. Consequently, the purpose of the alumni chapter is to encourage an organized effort to become more knowledgeable and actively support Lenoir-Rhyne University. All LR alumni are automatically members of the Alumni Association.
The Office of Alumni Engagement is hoping to establish a new alumni chapter in North Carolina in 2023. Check back here in the new year to see if an alumni chapter is coming to your area.
Chapter membership is open to all LR alumni, degree and non-degree holders, without the collection of dues.
The Charlotte area is home to nearly 2,000 LR alumni, our largest alumni base outside of Hickory.
The chapter is led by a group of chapter representatives who live in the Charlotte area and have committed to plan and organize chapter events. The following alumni have agreed to serve as a chapter representative until May 31, 2023.
- Alex Askey '13
- Martha Hauser '70
- Rick Heedick '73
- Marcus Kincaid '17
- Kristin Laxton '17
- John Love '81
- Dawon Millwood '12
- Lenzi Moore '17
- Alex Paige '13
- Alexus Paige '14

*Chapter representatives serve from June 1 to May 31 and can serve a maximum of three consecutive terms.
