In this position, Frye will be responsible for preparing student deposits, overseeing all receipt funds, creating and monitoring purchasing orders for the institution, and assisting families and students with payment plans.

Prior to her work for William Peace University, she served as the campaign assistant and coordinator for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Eastern North Carolina.
“We are so excited to have Courtney on the staff of William Peace University and serving as our accounts receivable and purchasing coordinator,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Through her perseverance and dedication in previous positions with the university, Courtney has shown that she is ready to handle the responsibilities and leadership that come with her newly appointed position.”
“Being a person who consistently looks for challenge, William Peace University has provided me with an opportunity to grow as both an individual and professional, broadening my skill sets throughout my career,” said Frye. “The experience I had on this campus has molded and shaped me as a person, and I am thankful to have the chance to assist today’s students through their undergraduate studies at William Peace University.”
A native of Gastonia, N.C., Frye resides in Raleigh with her husband, Phillip, and son, Davis.
