David Ivey, '98 alum and a partner with Doeve Law Firm in Georgia, was recently elected to the Board of Directors at Mississippi University for Women (MUW) Alumni Association. He was the first male to serve as student body president and earned his bachelor's degree in history from MUW in 1992. He later received his master's degree in public policy and administration from Mississippi State University and a J.D. from UDC-DCSL in 1998.
He said his love for MUW has grown through the years, and he's proud of his family's long involvement with the campus. He's optimistic for the future he will help shape as a member of the alumni board.
"I think the W has really come out of a couple of very challenging years," Ivey said. "Last year, with the merger, it's a bright new light for the school. Being part of that, being able to go forward under a merged alumni association, is exciting. I'm looking forward to being able to offer new ideas on how to continue the momentum in getting our group back together so we can focus on the future of attracting some of the brightest minds in our country."
