Becky Hale


Becky Hale

Director of Creative Services

As a member of the communications team, I design and manage the production of print communications for a variety of audiences to advance the messages and brand identity of the College. Since joining the Knox staff in 1997, I have worked on many interesting projects-the most memorable being a fireproof diploma for honorary degree recipient Stephen Colbert in 2006. I'm a lifelong local resident, having grown up on the dairy farm across from Green Oaks, Knox's 700-acre biological field station in rural Knox County.
