News and Events

The Office of Marketing and Communications serves as the official channel for delivering university news to local, state, and national media services. Using established media contacts, our office coordinates publicity of Mars Hill University news and events.

If you have a unique story to tell, information that affects a broad range of people, or if your department is hosting an event that is open to the public, contact our office and we will help you determine how to best provide the story to the media. Send story ideas and event information to Director of Publications Teresa Buckner (828-689-1304) or to Director of Communications Mike Thornhill (828-689-1298).

For marketing and advertising inquiries, contact Senior Director of Marketing and Communications Samantha Fender (828-689-1126).

For inquiries related to our web and social media sites, contact Director of Online Presence and New Media Jaime McKee (828-689-1148).
