Huntingdon Remembers Su Ofe
Montgomery, Ala. – With great sadness Huntingdon College announces the passing of Su Ofe, Huntingdon’s Vice President for Communications and Marketing, following an extended illness. Su was a 29-year member of the Huntingdon College administration. We extend deepest condolences to her husband, Steve, and to her daughters, Erin Ofe Mauldin ’12 and Lexie Ofe White ’17.
“Su Ofe represented the heart and soul of Huntingdon College,” commented Huntingdon President Cam West. “She was a brilliant lady, dedicated to all members of the Huntingdon College family, and she told stories of the Huntingdon College experience beautifully to all constituencies of the College. She was a great champion for the arts at Huntingdon and was often the point person for distinguished lecturers, musicians and artists visiting the College. She embodied the spirit of Huntingdon – a lady of great faith, a fountain of wisdom devoted to life-long learning, and a heart of gold who truly cared for the least of these. Not only did Su Ofe love Huntingdon College, Huntingdon people truly loved Su Ofe.”
Su Ofe started working in higher education in 1981 as a work-study student at her undergraduate alma mater, the Maryland Institute College of Art. From 1983 to 2000 she served in areas of admission, marketing, and enrollment management at the Maryland College of Art and Design (Silver Spring, Maryland), Marycrest College (Davenport, Iowa), Chatham College (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), and, beginning in 1995, Huntingdon College. In 2000, Su moved to the communications and marketing arena for Huntingdon, where she wrote, directed and managed internal and external communications, marketing, media relations, college marketing publications, photography, social media communications, the College Web site, and community relations. She wrote and edited the highly acclaimed Huntingdon College Magazine.
Outside of Huntingdon, Su was a devoted member of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where she served as director of music and worship.
