Director of the Forester Fund
Marcy Hawkins worked at three nonprofit organizations before returning to her alma mater as the director of the Forester Fund at Huntington University in 2014. She graduated from Huntington College in 2003 with a degree in business management. Marcy also earned her MBA from Huntington University in 2020. In her current role, Marcy interacts with alumni and friends all around the world, sharing about Huntington University and student impact stories. She also encourages alumni and community members to donate to the Forester Fund so that incoming and current Huntington University students have financial assistance. Marcy’s connection to the University is significant, with family members associated with Huntington as far back as 1902.
Marcy currently resides in Roanoke with her husband Nathan (2003) and two children, Jack and Molly, who keep her busy with watching their extracurricular activities. Staying busy with extracurricular activities, however, has never been a problem for her. She was a member of the Hopping Hoosiers jump rope team for 20 years and even received fourth place in the National Amateur Jump Rope Competition. Marcy also traveled as a student at Huntington College to Ground Zero in New York after 9/11. More recently, Marcy and her husband helped launch a church in Florence, Kentucky, in 2009, a church that thrives today.
