The Office of University Advancement at Lubbock Christian University is pleased to announce the appointment of Sheila (Ludwig) Dye as Director of Alumni Relations. Dye is a member of the 1980 graduating class and is a member of the LCU Board of Trustees. She begins her role on October 7.
“This is an extraordinarily good day for Lubbock Christian University as we announce the addition of Sheila Dye to our alumni relations team,” states President Perrin. “She has served with distinction on LCU’s governing board, has enjoyed great success in executive leadership positions, and brings a deep love for LCU and our alumni. I know that I join the entire Lubbock Christian University family in welcoming Sheila to this new role of service to her alma mater.”
Dye brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to LCU. As a successful health care leader and executive, Dye created innovative human resources strategies, drove significant change management initiatives, inspired solutions for human capital problems, and led teams of all sizes in the achievement of corporate goals. Prior to LCU, her most recent appointment was as a Vice President for Baylor Health Care System responsible for human resources, talent acquisition, retention, and human resources communications.
Dye’s passion for Lubbock Christian University has taken many forms. She served in both staff and editor roles with the year book, El Explorador from 1976-1980 and was highly engaged in all aspects of campus life. She was a key-note presenter at the Women in Leadership Forum held on the LCU campus in fall 2010. She was appointed to the LCU Board of Trustees in 2010 where she has served with distinction. She has resigned from the Board to assume her new role as Director of Alumni Relations.
“I am honored to serve the needs of Lubbock Christian University in the alumni director role and can’t wait to engage with current and future alumni,” states Dye. “It is our time to join together in making a difference for the university that changed our lives for the better.”
Sheila achieved a Masters in Human Resources in Training from Amberton University in 2002 and is married to Howard. Their daughter, Whitney (Dye) Kennedy, graduated from LCU in 2010; and their son, Trey, is currently a sophomore at LCU and a second year member of the singing group Best Friends. Their daughter, Brittany, lives and works in New York City as she pursues a career in musical theatre.
President Perrin reiterates, “Our alumni are critical to the future success and growth of Lubbock Christian University, and Sheila is very well prepared to take on this leadership role.”
