Posted on February 17, 2014.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 17, 2014 – High Point University recently hired April Atchley as a success coach in the Freshman Success Program.

Atchley provides support and guidance to incoming HPU freshmen. Along with aiding students in their academic, social and career choices, Atchley supports students in the transition from high school to college. She is responsible for helping them seek out opportunities inside and outside the classroom.

“By providing guidance and encouragement, I will help the freshmen of HPU transition to college, become connected to the campus and culture, and then succeed in their academic coursework,” Atchley says.

Throughout her career, Atchley has served as a student advocate at the middle school, high school and college levels. Atchley previously worked with Guilford College as an associate director for the Adult Degree Program. She later served as the assistant director for GEAR UP at Appalachian State University, a federally funded grant program that encouraged first-generation and low-income students to attend college.

“As an alumna of High Point University, I am thrilled to be back on campus and giving back to this extraordinary freshman class,” Atchley says.

Atchley earned a Bachelor of Science, as well as a Master of Arts in English, from Appalachian State University. She also earned a Bachelor of Science in home furnishings from High Point University.
