The Coffee Family
Glenn, Karen, Adam and Hannah from Chapel Hill, NC
Glenn, originally from Hudson, OH and Karen, from Rochester, NY met at Wittenberg University (Springfield,OH) and married after graduating. Glenn's career in sales with Kohler company ultimately brought the family to Chapel Hill, NC in 2001. As a family we love boating, fishing, traveling and spending time with friends and family.
Glenn is the director of retail sales for Kohler Company and Karen worked in finance before becoming a stay at home mom and volunteer while raising Adam and Hannah. Their eldest child, Adam ('17), is a computer science major at Appalachian and feels that Appalachian is the perfect match for him. Appalachian was their daughter Hannah's ('19) first choice for college and she is also thrilled to be a Mountaineer. Currently her major is undecided.
With both kids as students at Appalachian, Karen feels honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Parent's Association Board. "I am looking forward to giving back to the University by serving on the board. I am proud to tell people that both of our kids attend Appalachian! I consider Appalachian an extension of my family and it is my hope that I can help prospective students/families decide to make Appalachian their destination for higher education. The Mountaineer spirit bubbles out of me!"
