Returning to Central is truly a wonderful experience. Having the opportunity to renew acquaintances from years ago as well as develop new relationships with alumni and friends of the University is exciting. For the past 40 years, Central has been a major part of my life and I am blessed to get to work with others who believe strongly in the mission and values of our institution.

"That feeling you get when you first step foot on the Central campus is electric. Having spent the last 11 years of my life in close proximity to a larger school, the familial environment here has been a welcome change. I truly enjoy meeting students, faculty, staff, and alumni and getting to hear the stories of how this institution has changed their life. I'm grateful and honored that I get to spend my days here, working to ensure education is available to all who wish to seek it."

"My favorite aspect of Central, is the ability to make a difference. Not only do I enjoy building relationships and making connections but each connect is an inspiration and an honor. Central is truly a special place and it's a privilege to witness students develop through their Central experience and step into the world as capable, responsible leaders who are able to contribute to the world around them. I see Colleagues who create life long impacts on the paths of others and hear alumni who share their gratitude towards their Central experience and the faculty who made a difference in their lives. This is Central and the opportunity to make a difference and provide the same for others is deeply gratifying. I am proud to be a part of the Central Family!"
