Hasenoehrl is the new Director of Advancement
Mary Hasenoehrl, who has been involved with higher education fundraising and was regional director in the Lewiston area for Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo, has been named the Director of Advancement at Lewis-Clark State College, interim president J. Anthony Fernandez has announced.
Hasenoehrl, who lives in Lewiston and is a former student at LCSC, has spent the last six years as Director of Development for the University of Idaho's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. She has been fundraiser at UI for the past seven years.
"We are delighted that Mary Hasenoehrl will be joining the Lewis-Clark State College team," Fernandez said. "Mary is well known and respected in the local and State community and brings with her significant experience in fundraising."
Hasenoehrl brings a strong background of both fund- and friend-raising to the job. She has been active in the Lewiston-Clarkston area by working on various boards. Last November, she became the first woman ever to be elected as a Port of Lewiston commissioner.
Hasenoehrl begins her post at LCSC on Feb. 28.
"I'm excited and honored to be working with the LCSC Foundation, alumni, and everyone at the college," Hasenoehrl said, "especially now that maximizing private funding is so critical to the mission of LCSC."
Hasenoehrl is from Midvale and attended Midvale High before enrolling at LCSC in 1975. She earned a technical degree from Kaley Medical Center in 1978.
She served as the Office Manager/Grain Buyer for Stegner Grain & Seed Company in Clarkston during 1985-1993 where she met with regular and prospective clients and represented the company at local and state meetings.
In 1997, Hasenoehrl became a donor recruitment representative for the American Red Cross in Lewiston where she helped establish, develop, and coordinate a permanent blood donor center. Two years later, she became Sen. Crapo's Regional Director for the Lewiston area and managed the office and served as a liaison between the senator and constituents.
In 2004, Hasenoehrl became Assistant Director for Annual Giving at the University of Idaho where she was responsible for increasing the number of donors in the President's Circle gift club. A year later, she was promoted to Director of Development for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences where she initiated a $30 million campaign. Although the campaign won't end until 2014, it is already more than two-thirds of the way to $30 million. She also increased the giving to College of Agricultural and Life Sciences by nearly 9.2 percent during the last three years.
