Name: Kevin Ghorm.

Position: Development analyst in the Office of Development. Analyzing trends in development, looking at different populations of donors, creating spreadsheets and writing reports. He joined the staff last October.

Quote: "Being a Princeton graduate (class of 1999) helps me a lot in my job, because I already have an understanding of how the University works from the student side -- that complements what I'm learning as a staff member. The people here in development are great. It's a very supportive and nurturing environment."

Other interests: Serving on the board of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni, volunteering with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program in Princeton, taking a class on Web site design, working out, reading and cooking.
