The office of Alumni Affairs at Genesee Community College is pleased to announce Jacqueline Kay Christenson has been named the new Alumni Coordinator. Jacqueline, or ‘Jackie,’ began her new position on August 10, 2009 after the retirement of previous coordinator, Patti Pacino.

Previously, Jackie was the director of Alumni Programs at Roberts Wesleyan College, where she also served as the assistant director of Alumni Relations. At Roberts, she was responsible for organizing all of the Homecoming events, as well as many other alumni initiatives and communication efforts. In addition, she served in other capacities at Roberts, including office manager and tutor coordinator.

Jackie received her Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management and a Master’s degree in Business from Roberts Wesleyan College. She attended college as a non-traditional aged student and started her professional career later in life. As an adult student, Jackie had to balance the responsibilities of a home and family with her college studies. She enjoyed interfacing with all ages of students, and she is very eager to hear about the success of non-traditional Genesee students who have graduated and started their own careers.

“I’m really looking forward to connecting Genesee’s alumni,” Jackie said. “It will be interesting to meet the many different graduates and hear their stories. I hope to bring as many alumni back to campus as possible, so they can see how much the college continues to grow and how their support and involvement with their alma mater adds an incredible dynamic to the to the life and times at Genesee.”

One new opportunity Jackie plans to develop in her first year is an Alumni Mentoring program. Funded by a grant, she hopes to match successful alumni with current students to foster relationships and help to guide students with career advice and possible job shadowing.

Jackie is a resident of North Chili, NY and has two sons Jeff (34) and Steve (29). She enjoys spending time with her family, especially her two granddaughters Claire and Maggie. She also enjoys camping, and Cajun Zydeco and Swing dancing.
