News In-Brief

Betsy Stephenson hired to direct development

Betsy Stephenson will serve as the new director of development as of March 1. She will work to complete the Leadership in Learning campaign and take on other significant fund-raising priorities for the future.

Stephenson began her career in athletics administration, serving the NCAA, University of Kansas, UCLA, and Emory University in varying capacities. A few years ago she switched the emphasis of her professional goals to “advancement.” Most recently she has served as assistant vice president of foundation giving and communications at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Stephenson said that she hopes “to bring the Leadership In Learning Campaign to a successful conclusion while continuing to build strategically on the development success that our volunteers and development staff have achieved.”

Former Associate Director of Alumnae Relations Lynn McCarthy will also assume new responsibilities as assistant director of development. In her new role, McCarthy will continue to provide direction for alumnae relation outreach efforts, and will also direct other focuses in the development office.

Corrections

Junior Laura Kellman voluteers as teaching assistant for IMPACT personal safety. Her name was left out of the UV’s Dec. 18 article on the topic.

In its Dec. 18 article on transgender issues, the UV should have quoted Alliance Co-President Haley Weaver ’10 as saying that there are transgender students at the school.

The school’s pool was put in use in 1970. In its Oct. 5 article on Jaye Toellner Rogovin ’81, the UV incorrectly reported when the pool was opened.
