After almost two years as UNCG's Alumni Association executive director, Becci Menghini is going home.
Menghini will return to Wisconsin where she can attend to family obligations.
I have enjoyed greatly my time at UNCG, and feel great satisfaction about the growth we've accomplished and the success we've realized, both as a staff and as an association, Menghini said. I cannot underscore how much I have come to care about this place. I have learned so much since I arrived, and I feel lucky to have had this time with you.
Jeff Colbert, new president of the UNCG Alumni Association, said Becci will be missed. We have worked shoulder to shoulder and I love her dearly. Her energy, her enthusiasm, her ready smile and encouraging words have uplifted many of us. Becci possesses the ability to make everyone around her feel better, and I treasure that about her. But, one of the cool things about Becci is that her ability to make you feel better does not come at the expense of the truth, of recognizing that we all have areas where we can and should improve, and that we have challenges ahead of us.
Menghini's last day will be Aug. 5.
