Holly Jackson-Ludlow, Maryville College’s assistant vice president for development, will become the interim vice president for advancement and community relations, which was effective as of Aug. 1.
The announcement of Jackson-Ludlow’s promotion was made recently by Maryville College President Dr. Gerald Gibson. She will replace Jason McNeal, who is leaving the College to join a higher-education consulting firm.
“Holly joined the Maryville College staff as a regional advancement officer in 2004, and has worked closely with [Vice President for Advancement and Community Relations] Jason McNeal and with me on the Our Window of Opportunity Campaign,” Gibson said. “We are fortunate to have someone of Holly’s experience and ability to succeed Jason at this critical point in the largest campaign in Maryville’s history.”
In addition to leading efforts to raise the remaining $11 million of the $83-million Our Window of Opportunity Campaign, Jackson-Ludlow will lead staff members in a division that is responsible for annual and deferred giving; marketing, communications and publicity; alumni, parent, church and donor relations and programming.
The daughter of the late Dr. Charles O. Jackson, former associate dean of liberal arts and history professor at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, Jackson-Ludlow graduated from UT-K with a bachelor of arts degree in interpersonal and public communication in 1987.
Prior to coming to the College, she was the vice president of membership, vice president of education and development, and director of education and operations for the Knoxville Area Chamber Partnership.
Active in the community, she has volunteered with the United Way and served on the boards of the Teacher Supply Depot, Partners in Education and Tennessee Technology Center.
