As a graduate, alumnus, and faculty member's daughter, Duncan returned to the university in September 2001 when she was appointed director of Alumni Relations. Recently, her background in sales and marketing became important to fund-raising for the university, in light of the recent budget cuts to higher education statewide. In the newly-created position of director of Corporate and Foundation Relations, Duncan will be responsible for fund-raising and maintaining relationships with all Tennessee Tech corporate and foundation donors and supporters.
One of her primary responsibilities for the immediate future will be to support the TTU School of Nursing and its efforts to build a new health facility on the campus.
Duncan's community involvement includes serving as the recently-elected president of the Cookeville chapter of Business and Professional Women (BPW) and a member of the Leadership Putnam Alumni Association. She lives in Cookeville with her husband, Jeff, and children Delaney and Drew.
Duncan can be reached at 372-6091 or email@example.com. The new coordinator for Alumni Relations is former assistant director Beth Smith.
