Meet Alumni Board Member - Wren Keber

Wren Keber, ’06, information technology: Web development (BTech), works as a manager at The Camden Group, a consulting firm.

A native of Naples, NY, Wren continued his studies, completing his master of business administration in management and marketing from St. Bonaventure University.

He went on to work in Washington, DC, but returned home to his native New York, settling in Rochester.

Wren, active while he was a student at the college, enjoys being on the Alumni Association Board of Directors because “it allows me to keep my connection to Alfred open in a way that gives back. I was a very involved student, sitting on the College Council and Student Senate, as well as serving as editor-in-chief of the Tor Echo and on the exec boards of numerous other clubs and organizations. I had a passion about Alfred State that was certainly manic at times, but which provided a lot of the skills that I use every day now. My position on the Board keeps a little bit of that Alfred spark alive.”

Wren has been an active Alumni Board member; in the past, “I have served as the 1st vice president, which meant I was the chair of the Events Committee, organizing many of the events that the Alumni Association sponsors each year. However, lately, I am concentrating on bringing a Young Alumni focus to the Association and how current students and recent grads can be more effectively engaged.”

Wren’s love of ASC revolves around his fond memories: “Neil Benedict’s inventing the term ‘Wren-tentive’ to describe my organizational tendencies – and then announcing that at ASCaRS 2006; Countless hours in Orvis laying out editions of the Tor Echo when I was both layout manager and editor-in-chief; A road trip with Spencer Peavey to Albany to receive the Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence in 2006.”

With an energetic and committed young alumnus on the board, there’s no doubt membership among recent grads will rise.
