Michael J. Teskey, former director of alumni relations at Lewis & Clark College, became Reed’s director of alumni relations in October.

“The alumni association is pleased to welcome Michael to Reed and conclude a national search for our director,” said John Sheehy ’82, president of the alumni association. “We look forward to working with Michael, a proven community builder, in achieving our goal of engaging Reed alumni with the college today.”

Teskey will be responsible for sustaining and strengthening programs to encourage alumni participation in and understanding of the college. He will serve as the principal liaison between the college and the alumni board, and work to build effective activities that promote communication among alumni and with the college.

As director of alumni relations at Lewis & Clark, Teskey supported and expanded an array of programs of interest to alumni. Long interested in building communities, Teskey worked as a program associate for the National Trust for Historic Preservation and as vice president of CommunityFirst!, a firm devoted to revitalizing local communities. Teskey also serves on the planning committee for the Minary Conference on Alumni Education, a national gathering of alumni directors that develops strong academically oriented programs for alumni. A graduate of Lewis & Clark College with a bachelor of arts in history and German, Teskey pursued further study in public history at Northeast-ern University in Boston, specializing in community and corporate histories.

“I am thrilled by the prospect of working at Reed and with the college’s alumni,” said Teskey. “I have always held the college in the highest regard, and feel fortunate to have this opportunity to join the Reed community in working with the alumni association to promote and strengthen the college’s particular and rigorous mode of education.” End of Article
