Mississippi Valley State University’s Office of University Advancement has brought on a new director of alumni relations who is familiar with the institution and all things Valley.
Jackson native Kylon T. Alford-Windfield, a 2013 graduate of MVSU, has been tabbed as the director of alumni relations. His primary duties include serving as a liaison between University administration, the National Alumni Association, area chapters and alumni of the institution.
He officially began in his new role Nov. 1 Windfield said he’s humbled and excited to serve in this capacity at his alma mater.
Dameon Shaw, MVSU’s interim vice-president of advancement, said bringing Windfield aboard should provide a boost of energy to the department.
Windfield said he hopes to help improve efficiency in key areas of the office while maintaining the same welcoming culture that was established by the previous director, Willie Young, who retired in June.
Windfield said he also plans to increase contributions from alumni and university stakeholders. Before joining the Office of University Advancement, Windfield served in MVSU’s Office of Admissions and Recruitment for three years. Prior to that, he worked briefly at Rust College in Holly Springs.
He believes the skill set he gained while working in Admissions will transfer well in his new role.
