The School of Dentistry is pleased to announce the promotion of Sarah B. Huppert (formerly Andrews) to regional director of development in the Office of Advancement. This promotion was effective as of Thursday, November 21. In her new position, she will be responsible for major gifts fundraising in South Carolina and eastern North Carolina.
Huppert joined the School of Dentistry as assistant director of development, responsible for the school’s annual fund and UNC Dental Alumni Association, in September 2010. Prior to joining the School of Dentistry, she was assistant director for gift planning operations within the Office of University Development. In that role, she managed life income programs, the Charles Gerrard Legacy Society, the biannual Carolina Living Legends meeting, and marketing and stewardship initiatives, among other responsibilities.
Before joining University Development in 2007, she was a planned giving assistant with the UNC Center for Public Television. She received her Bachelor of Arts in sociology and justice and policy studies in 2001 from Guilford College and was a Presidential Scholar from 1997 to 2001.
