The Young Alumni Council Executive Committee:
President: Kevin Fee (09)
Since graduating in 2009, I have taken an active role in the community by volunteering for community events and coaching a youth basketball team. In the past two years, I have begun to give back to APSU by becoming involved with the National Alumni Association Board. Since becoming involved, I have had the honor to be elected as the President of the Montgomery County Alumni Chapter and recently became the first President of the newly formed Young Alumni Council. As for my career, the last 2 years I have been working for the Clarksville Visitors Bureau and helping to coordinate several yearly events such as the Rivers and Spires Festival and the Go Commando Half-Marathon. I also manage the Clarksville Welcome Center. In my free time, I enjoy reading, running in local races, and spending time with my wife.
