As Campbell University’s Homecoming 2013 approached, we asked alumni to share with us via Facebook and Twitter what they have been up to since they graduated.
We heard from a diverse group who are working in a variety of fields all around the world. They are educators, social workers, paralegals, military officers, business owners, writers, IT specialists, and doctors, among numerous other professions, who are protecting our country, serving others, creating things, keeping us informed, tackling societal challenges, and pursuing advanced degrees. We even heard from about a half-dozen who are working right here at Campbell.
One of the more than 40 alumni who wrote in with an update was David Hesselmeyer ’02 of Lillington, N.C. He owns On Target Preparedness, which works with the public and private sectors to aid in developing emergency response plans and providing training for first responders. He’s also a paramedic, firefighter and fire/EMS instructor. “[Campbell] definitely started me on my long journey to where I am now and I thoroughly appreciate it,” he wrote.
For his submission, Hesselmeyer was randomly selected to receive a prize package that includes a gift card to the campus bookstore and tickets to Saturday’s Homecoming football game vs. Mercer, which begins at 4 p.m., courtesy of Campbell’s Office of Annual Giving.
You can read Hesselmeyer’s full submission -- and all the others -- in the Storify slideshow below.
Also, it’s not too late to be added to our collection of alumni updates. Tweet us (@campbelledu) or post a comment on our Facebook page, and tell us how you’re using your Campbell degree today.
