By AccessWDUN Staff

Truett McConnell University has selected a new Director of Alumni Relations from within the TMU family, according to information released this week by university officials. 

Dr. David Drake, Director of Church Relations, accepted the position as an addition to his existing role. 

"My goal is to help the alumni association understand the importance of their role as alumni for the sake of Truett McConnell University – to communicate, to connect, and to be recruiters," Drake said in a press statement. 

In his new role, Drake will work closely with the Truett McConnell University Alumni Association and its board members with the goal of increasing alumni membership and involvement in the university.

"With his heart as a pastor and for the church, there is no better fit for Director of Alumni Relations than Dr. Drake," said TMU President Dr. Emir Caner. "Dr. Drake is known throughout our convention and has already worked closely with many of our alumni. How blessed we are that he has agreed to serve our graduates."

Along with his responsibilities as Director of Church Relations, Drake will be responsible for overseeing and strengthening communication among graduates, faculty and staff, and other friends of the Truett McConnell University family. Drake plans to provide a comprehensive alumni program with events, social gatherings, networking, other alumni-related matters.

Drake will transition into the additional role as the new 2019 semester begins.
