  • St. Louis, MO-IL (1888PressRelease) March 31, 2015 - Fontbonne University has named Kitty Nangle Lohrum vice president for institutional advancement, effective March 30.

"Being a native St. Louisan, she has a solid network in the area which will be a key element in advancing supportive relationships with our community."

    Lohrum, who most recently served as a development director at Saint Louis University, will oversee all aspects of fundraising, including annual giving, major gifts, planned giving and campaign planning. She'll also oversee alumni relations and provide support for the Fontbonne Community Connection, the Council of Regents and the Board of Trustees.
