From the Alumni Relations Office

Tracy Vezina Patterson ’84 and Bud Richey

Dear Alumnus/a,

As you probably have heard by now, there have been some leadership changes in Alumni Relations. Bud Richey, who has served as associate vice president for College Relations and director of Alumni Relations, has a new title and responsibilities: associate vice president for External Programs, the new name for College Relations. Stepping into the role of director of Alumni Relations is Tracy Vezina Patterson ’84, who has served as associate director of that office.

In his new role, Bud will be focusing on Rhodes in Memphis, building strategic relationships throughout the community, helping maintain established partnerships with civic, government and corporate organizations, while cultivating new ones that aid Rhodes in broadening student fellowships, internships and engagement. He’ll also remain involved on campus through supporting various programs and events held at the college.

We thank Bud for his unparalleled service to Rhodes and its alums these last few years and look forward to seeing him more around town and campus. We also look forward to continued growth and engagement of alumni under Tracy’s leadership.
