Sarah Lively Turner '98
Director of Alumni & Donor Relations
Graduation is not the end of Concord’s commitment to you. Sarah Turner works to keep alumni connected to their alma mater and to be a resource to them long after they leave campus. From emails and social media to our CU After Hours events, Sarah’s goal is to keep as many alums as possible connected to the university. Strong connections like these will make possible future mentoring programs that will connect alums to current students. Sarah, an alum that comes from a family of Concordians, has a strong loyalty to this university, like many of our graduates. Several of our scholarships are made possible through alumni financial support. When you choose Concord University, you become part of a legacy and the Alumni office will make sure you stay connected.

Mikayla began her journey at Concord as an undecided major. After attending a conference with her mother, who is a business educator, she left inspired and acknowledged her desire to educate the younger generations about business. This ultimately began Mikayla’s journey in pursuing a degree in Education. Whether she was in the classroom or on the sidelines cheering on the Mountain Lions, she knew Concord was right for her. Mikayla earned her Bachelor of Science in Education and is now employed by Roanoke City Schools in Virginia as a Business Teacher. It Starts With You.
