HAYS, Kan. -- Jon Armstrong will join the Fort Hays State University Foundation on Sept. 1 as a new director of development.

His fundraising efforts in that position will be focused on the Division of Student Affairs and the College of Science, Technology and Mathematics.

Armstrong is currently the assistant director of admissions. He began at FHSU in 2008 as the assistant director of the Virtual College. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in communication studies and a Master of Professional Studies in organizational leadership, both from FHSU.

"Throughout my career at Fort Hays State, I've thoroughly enjoyed making connections with students, parents and alumni," said Armstrong. "I can't wait to share my story, my enthusiasm and my passion for FHSU in this new role."

"As a director of development, I'm excited to connect with not only alumni, faculty, and staff, but also future donors within our Tiger family, as well. These folks are making an incredible impact on the future of our university and our students."

Armstrong lives in Hays with his wife, Lynette, and two sons, Jace and Dawson. He and his family enjoy sports and attending as many Fort Hays State events as they can.

Established in 1945, the FHSU Foundation is committed to cultivating lasting relationships with alumni, friends, corporations and other organizations that have a passion for Fort Hays State University and want to continue its legacy of excellence. As an independent, non-profit organization, their donors have an impact on all facets of university life, and their support continues to translate into success for students and the FHSU learning environment.
