    A little over nine years ago, Hazel revitalized the Alumni Association of the Sullivan University System.  The association has grown from “0” members in 2006 to over “7000” today.  Success has been realized with alumni registered in 48 states and in 12 countries. She is Canadian by birth and became an American Citizen in 2012.

    She is a graduate of Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland and Sullivan University, Louisville.  She founded a business school in Halifax, NS in 1989 and it continues to operate today under the name “Success College”.  She currently owns a Sports /Academic School,” Newbridge Academy” in Halifax, Nova Scotia which offers sports and academic programs starting at Pre-Kindergarten through to Grade 12. Newbridge Academy has recently received the designation as a prep school which will offer Varsity sports teams this coming school year.   She has been in the field of education in excess of 40 years.

    She is very involved with charities in the Louisville Area.  Inclusive of:  (1) Wayside Christian Mission; (2) Gilda’s Club; (3) Mom’s Closet; (4) The Heart Association and (5) One Parent Scholar House (Lexington).  Her passion is working with individuals to better their life skills resulting in objectives and goals being met.  Her realization that Alumni make a difference can be seen through her work with alumni.

    I live in Louisville, KY and graduated from Sullivan with my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resource Leadership in 2008 and my Master’s in Management in 2013. I am the Associate Director of Alumni Affairs and enjoy working with alumni in this role with The Sullivan University System. I’ve been an employee with SUS since March 2002. I’m married to a wonderful man and we have a five year old daughter that keeps us busy”

    The best part of my job is celebrating alumni that are doing amazing things in their field. We love to hear success stories! Tell us yours!

    Robin Pryor Administrative Assistant

    I was born and raised in Louisville, KY, but I have lived in many parts of the state.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and Allied Language Arts with Secondary Teacher Certification at Western Kentucky University in 2009.  Before that, I earned an Associate of Science in Accounting and an Associate of Arts degree from Prestonsburg Community College.

    I am happily married to a wonderful man from Liverpool, England, and he really loves being in America.  We have two awesome dogs with extremely quirky personalities, and we enjoy all the things Louisville has to offer – particularly attending Louisville City soccer games.

    Working with Alumni is very exciting for me because I love watching how successful you all become!
