CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — Alyssa Francona has been named the new Senior Associate AD for Development at Boston College. Francona replaces Adam Miller, who has taken a similar role at Penn State after two years at the Heights.
Over the last four years, Francona has steadily progressed toward a leadership role within Boston College Athletics, elevating from associate director to the role of Assistant AD for Major Giving. In that most recent role, Francona led the major gift fundraising team to a record year of new philanthropic commitments and collaborated closely with BC's coaching staff & athletic leadership to support sport specific strategic initiatives and capital projects, including the most recent Hoag Basketball Pavilion project.
