2022 Belmont Sport Administration and Corporate Communication graduate Peter Geoly and 2023 graduate of Belmont Politics and Public Law Keidron Turner were recently selected to serve as Young Alumni Regents on Belmont University’s Board of Trustees. Young Alumni Regents are chosen to help provide leadership and direction to the Board by representing the views of students and new alumni.
Geoly’s student experience was characterized by a high level of involvement in clubs and organizations. He served in various capacities as a Bruin recruiter including working as an outreach specialist, overnight host, greeter, welcome desk worker, tour guide and admission assistant. He co-founded the Sport Admin Club, and he was involved in University Catholic Association and held several leadership positions, including vice president. Geoly was inducted into two honor societies, and he served as a team leader and ambassador for the Belmont Office of Leadership Development (BOLD).
“Above all, during my four years, I tried to give back to the school that gave me so much,” Geoly said. “The Young Alumni Regent position will provide me with the opportunity to continue to give back to the Belmont community and provide a voice for students and young alumni.”
Turner exhibited exemplary leadership both on campus and in the Nashville community as a student. He served as a senator within the Student Government Association, co-chairing Belmont’s Voter Friendly Campus Initiative. Turner was officially recognized by the Tennesse State Legislature for his work as a legislative intern for the Tennessee General Assembly in 2021, and he participated in the 2023 Nashville Mayoral Debates, submitting a student editorial piece and volunteering at the first of four scheduled debates held May 18 in the Fisher Center for Performing Arts.
“I simply want to return the favor by being a vessel of service to the values and mission of our university,” Turner said. “The mission and investment into student success is something that has never faded with the ever-growing changes within Belmont and Nashville. I will be forever grateful and in debt for that.”
Regents are invited to all Board meetings and are provided with all materials pertaining to Board activities. Though they do not vote on action items before the Board, selected representatives serve on various committees and their advisory role is invaluable in guiding the Board in its thoughts and actions.
Geoly will serve as regent for a two-year term and Turner will hold the position for a three-year term. In total, three Belmont alumni are selected as Young Alumni Regents. 2018 graduate Emily Falvey is currently serving as a regent and her term will expire in 2024.
