Casey Perkins began at William & Mary as a student and joined the department of University Advancement shortly after graduating in September of 2015. Casey is the Assistant Director of Alumni Programs and Special Events and as the co-advisor for Students for University Advancement. She also serves as the liaison to the Olde Guarde, an alumni council comprised of those who have surpassed their 50th reunion. She works strategically to add value to alumni events and programs including Homecoming, reunions, and many others. In her time, she has focused on creating added value, such as cultural, intellectual, and professional programming, as well as social elements.
This effort has carried over into student programming where Casey recognized a need for a sophisticated and strong student group to lead engagement and philanthropic efforts. This webcast has grown out of the work Casey has put into growing a force of students that lead engagement on campus including student programming for undergrads that features substantive value. Currently she is working to develop a student-programming brand to create cohesion between student engagement and philanthropy efforts.
Lyda Stokes joined William & Mary in June of 2016 after obtaining her Masters in Higher Education from The University of Mississippi. Lyda serves as the Assistant Director of Student Philanthropy and Recent Graduate Engagement and is the co-advisor to Students for University Advancement. In her position, Lyda works closely with the Class Ambassador program, working primarily with classes of 2010-2013. In addition, she serves as the staff liaison to the Culture of Philanthropy Subcommittee of the Annual Giving Board, and oversees all student philanthropy initiatives.
Due to Lyda’s experience both as a member and graduate advisor to The Columns Society, a prestigious service organization at The University of Mississippi, Lyda saw the need for a strong student group charged with leading student philanthropy at William & Mary. Her experience allowed her to shape and mold Students for University Advancement into the premier organization it is today. Currently, Lyda is pursuing her Ed.D. in Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership.
