Beebe Native Returns to Join University’s Development Team

Cole is a Beebe High School graduate, attended ASU-Beebe and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Management from A-State in Jonesboro. Following college she spent nine years with the A-State Athletics Department working in marketing, events planning, public relations, development, fundraising and contributed to the development of ASU's former spirit character "RED."  She later served as Assistant Vice President of Marketing at SynTel, LLC, and was most recently a RE/MAX Real Estate agent for several years in Jonesboro. 

With her background and experience working in the A-State setting, Cole looks at her new position as an opportunity to “come back home to the ASU-Beebe campus”.

Cole has a keen understanding of the need to build relationships and looks forward to working with University staff, donors, alumni and the community to enhance the legacy and build a strong future for ASU-Beebe. 

Cole said "There is no place like home, and the ability to give back and be part of something greater on these campuses is priceless.  There have been many supporters of our great University and we want to thank them for participating in our legacy, and ask them to visit us often, continue to assist in supporting future growth and welcome them on campus.”
