Appointment of New Vice President: A Message from President J. Cameron West

December 2, 2022

Staff Colleagues:
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Bria Rochelle-Stephens ’18 to serve as Vice President for Strategic Academic Initiatives and Director of the Presidential Fellows Program, effective January 1, 2023.  She succeeds Leanne Mallory Carroll ’05, who has resigned to accept an administrative position at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I am grateful to Leanne Carroll for her leadership as first director of the Presidential Fellows Program and for establishing it as an integral part of the academic and co-curricular life of the College.
Vice President Rochelle-Stephens distinguished herself as a student at Huntingdon, graduating summa cum laude with a major in Exercise Science, and then at Duke University Divinity School where she graduated with a Master’s of Divinity in 2021 and where she now serves on the Board of Visitors.  As a Huntingdon student, she was awarded the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, was a four year starter on the volleyball team and a member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, and was elected Homecoming Queen by her fellow students.  Returning to Huntingdon as a Religion faculty member in 2021, she received the Julia Lightfoot Sellers Award for excellence in teaching at the May, 2022 Commencement Exercises.  She has served the Presidential Fellows Program as Co-Coach of the Politics, Culture and Civic Engagement Team this academic year, and she will continue co-coaching that team and teaching one course in the Religion Department during spring semester 2023 while assuming her new vice presidential responsibilities.
Please reach out to Bria Rochelle-Stephens with your best wishes!
Hawk ‘Em!!
