Team works to expand, enrich alum community
It takes a special person to step into a job in which the first task is helping to plan two major alum weekends happening within two months of the position’s start date—and make it look easy.
Spend one moment with the collected and cordial Susan “Sue” Little Doyle ’77 and you immediately realize that she is, indeed, that person.
Wheaton officials have known this for a long time, having benefited from her leadership skills over the years through her many roles as a volunteer. Now, Doyle is putting those skills to use on a broader scale as the new executive director of Alumnae/i Relations.
Hired in August as the acting director, she oversaw Homecoming Weekend events and the Alumnae/i Leadership Conference (ALC), and is well into planning for Reunion Weekend.
In December, Doyle became the permanent director. She previously was a clinical interventionist in the Fitchburg Public Schools in Massachusetts, where she was responsible for the therapeutic work with students who face emotional and behavioral challenges.
