Morningside College has named Ahmad Boura to the position of vice president for institutional advancement. Boura has overall responsibility for the college’s fundraising efforts and alumni relations.
Boura came to Morningside from Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, N.H., where he had served as vice president of institutional advancement since 2009. During his 10 years of fundraising at Franklin Pierce, Boura also worked as chief development officer, director of individual giving and assistant director of development for annual fund.
At Morningside, Boura’s responsibilities will include directing and coordinating the college’s “Vision 2020: Transformation II” fundraising campaign, which seeks to raise $50 million by 2019 for facilities improvements, endowment and annual scholarship fund. More than $37 million has already been raised toward the goal.
"I look forward to working with Ahmad to bring our current capital campaign to a successful conclusion,” said Morningside President John Reynders. “At the same time, I want to congratulate Tom Rice on his retirement as vice president for institutional advancement and thank him for his 28 years of dedicated service to Morningside.”
Boura has a Master of Business Administration degree from Franklin Pierce and a Bachelor of Commerce degree in accounting from Beirut Arab University in Beirut, Lebanon.
