William Peace University Names Sarah Heenan ’08 As Director of Student Activities
Four-Year Baccalaureate University Expands Staff With The Addition Of 2008 Alumna
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Sarah G. Heenan, a 2008 alumna, has been named director of student activities. In her position, Heenan will be responsible for overseeing the student involvement component of William Peace University as well as providing leadership in developing a cohesive student experience through campus activities, traditional campus wide events and downtown Raleigh-related programming. Additionally, she will advise the university’s campus activities board, maintain the student services events website and develop a comprehensive First-Year Experience program.
Previously, Heenan served as state authorization compliance assistant for Appalachian State University’s Office of Academic Affairs and Legal Counsel, as well as the graduate customer service assistant and textbook rush-floor manager for the university’s bookstore. Prior to that, she served as the bookstore manager for William Peace University. Heenan received a Bachelor of Arts in history followed by a Master of Arts in higher education administration from Appalachian State.
A native of Herndon, Va., Heenan is actively involved in the local community and serves as a board member for the North Carolina College and Personnel Association (NCCPA). NCCPA operates as the state’s division of the American College Personnel Association, which is committed to the student affairs profession and the higher education community in providing outreach, advocacy, research, and professional development to foster college student learning.
“I am honored to return to my alma mater and have the opportunity to serve as the director of student activities alongside several faculty and staff members who were key components of my college and early professional learning experiences,” said Heenan. “We have an ambitious slate of events we plan to implement to broaden our students’ experiences at William Peace University, and I look forward to unveiling and managing them.”
“William Peace University’s student services office truly enhances the overall educational experience for those learning at our institute,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “We are proud to welcome Sarah back and have her serve as a leader and mentor to the future generations of students here at William Peace University.”
