I am pleased to inform the College community that Shelley Semmler, vice
president for Institutional Advancement, has been named the CASE District II
Professional of the Year.
CASE (the Council for Advancement and Support of
Education) is this country’s most widely respected organization for
advancement, alumni relations, and marketing communications professionals in
higher education, and District II, the largest of CASE’s eight regions,
encompasses six mid-Atlantic states, the District of Columbia, Ontario, Puerto
Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The award recognizes Shelley’s outstanding leadership of the College’s
advancement program as well as her significant community service. Under her
leadership, Ithaca College’s annual fund-raising has enjoyed record-breaking
growth, and we have embarked on our first comprehensive fund-raising campaign.
Please join me in congratulating Shelley on receiving this very special honor.
President Peggy R. Williams
