Graham Messner

Chief Development Officer

As the Scotland Campus Chief Development Officer, Graham Messner’s primary responsibilities include raising funds, identifying volunteers and cultivating friendships that will last a lifetime. A lifelong resident of South Central Pennsylvania, Graham has enjoyed success in institutional fundraising, writing, real estate, logistics and technology. He worked for the Shippensburg University Foundation as a major gifts officer for Athletics and Corporate Sponsorships. Graham loves the area and spent many hours on the old Scotland School (SSVC) campus as a youngster playing every sport known to man. A Shippensburg University graduate, Graham has enjoyed being part of the fabric of the community and has served on various boards, coached both youth and high school athletics and won various awards for community service and coaching. “Let a smile be your umbrella,” said Messner when asked of his mantra. “Raising money is difficult and very rewarding at the same time. The Scotland Campus is easily one of the most important multi-denominational Christian projects this community has ever seen and it will not only just serve this community, but it will also impact the world around us.” He is married to his wife, Barbara, of 17 years.
