Chancellor Everts begins her tenure with community-building events

Dr. Sheri N. Everts began her tenure July 1 as Appalachian State University’s seventh leader.

Her first day in office included a listening breakfast with representatives from Appalachian’s Student Government Association, Faculty Senate and Staff Senate. Later, she hosted a luncheon at Appalachian House for local elected officials, area business leaders and others.

Everts also hosted an afternoon reception for staff members and attended the Appalachian Athletics/Sun Belt Conference Celebration Day held off campus. She plans to schedule opportunities to meet with students and faculty when classes resume for fall semester.
