Debra Daugherty is the director of Development here at Vol State, working in the College Foundation. She began her new position this spring. She comes most recently from the 15th Judicial District Child Advocacy Center in Lebanon where she was executive director. She also has extensive event coordination experience at companies including Sumner Regional Health Systems.
“I’ve always enjoyed event planning. I’ve been doing it forever, it seems like,” said Daugherty. “I have had a few classes at Vol State. I was an adult learner. I had to go back to school as a parent. I realize how important it is to have a great community college.
In her role as director of Development at Vol State, Daugherty will organize college fundraisers and Foundation events. She will also manage the College Alumni Association.
“We’re going to have an alumni networking event soon, a chocolate and wine tasting,” she said. “The Alumni Association is a great way for Vol State grads to stay in touch with each other and build career connections.”
