MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College’s interim director of marketing and director of news and public information, Kelley M. Arnold, will soon be learning more about the area she serves in a formal setting as she attends the 2008-2009 Leadership Toombs-Montgomery class this fall. The class is sponsored by the Toombs-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce.


Arnold has been a member of BPC’s administrative staff since August 2006, previously serving as the Editor of The Telfair Enterprise in McRae. Arnold’s supervisor, Dr. Cindy L. Skaruppa, vice president for enrollment services, was a member of the 2007-2008 Leadership Toombs-Montgomery class.


“As a newcomer to the Toombs-Montgomery County area, I found the Leadership class one of the best initiations to the hallmarks of what goes on in our community,” said Dr. Skaruppa. “Because Brewton-Parker College is such a vital enterprise within this community and because of Kelley’s talents in marketing and public relations, I feel her participation will not only benefit her personally and the college professionally, but to Toombs-Montgomery as a whole.”

According to the Chamber’s website, this six session program will “provide citizens with formal training sessions on specific areas of person and community development” and will “provide citizens with the opportunity to increase their overall knowledge of the community and the importance of good citizenship.”


Arnold enjoys serving the community she is employed in, offering her services and volunteer hours to organizations such as the American Cancer Society, United Way and Telfair ARC. While at Brewton-Parker College, she has been an active member of the BPC Women’s Fellowship, coordinating publicity and branding efforts for the college’s participation in the 2008 Vidalia Onion Festival Street Dance and the first BPC Chili Cook-off, to be held Saturday, Oct. 18 on the Mount Vernon campus. She is also the voice of the college’s “Under the Arch” news show on Vidalia Communications radio stations.


“I’m excited to learn more about this community and am impressed by the Chamber’s commitment to this program,” said Arnold. “I am honored to be selected both as a representative of the college and as a member of this year’s class.”
