I am honored to be added to the growing number of Class of ’59 Hall of Sponsors – number 23.It is so special to see this list continue to grow. Looking back on my years at Central College (names do change) I would lift up these memories… I helped organize Zeta Psi Lambda and was the charter president.I survived Dr.Schaff with my Elementary Education peers.I was gone from campus one semester, traveling to Germany as a 4-H Exchange student.And I returned to find John Gooch waiting for me!Those events helped shape my adult life. I would lift up these accomplishments… both of our children are now our friends and productive honorable adults.I spent many hours in data processing helping prepare a large hospital corporation for 2000; it was completed with zero defects.This is my twentieth year as a volunteer AARP Tax Preparer.I / we have learned much in this last year in how to live with this world wide Covid-19 pandemic.Beth Hammond Gooch March, 2021

I mainly play the baritone right now, but am always ready to try to learn to play a new one. I love nature, and any time I get to be out and explore it is a great time for me. I enjoy playing card games and board games. I like to watch movies and documentaries especially about World War 2. I always enjoy spending time with friends and family. I have always been a little shy, but can't wait to see what adventures life, and college in particular, have in store.

I am from Dearborn, MO. It is a little farming town north of Kansas City, MO. When I am not in Fayette, I live with my mom, dad, and older brother. He currently attends Missouri State University and serves in the U.S. Army. My mom is a marketer for a home health and hospice company and my dad is an electrician. I am currently a senior Pre-Med Biology major with a minor in Chemistry and Psychology. I plan on attending a Masters program for Genetic Counseling. I am currently looking at schools in Colorado and Texas since there are not programs in Missouri yet. I chose CMU because it felt like home. My town has just under 500 people, so the small-town feel made the transition from home to high school so much easier. The professors are also super helpful and kind. I joined Sigma Pi Alpha in Fall 2017 which has also helped me find my people and an added support group.

Sedalia, MO

I live in Sedalia, Missouri with my single mother and she works very hard to provide for me and my older brother who also attends college at UCM. With this money I can live out my dream of becoming a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. I plan to attend graduate school after CMU in order to attain my Nurse Practitioner's license. I do not have a hospital in mind, but I'm thinking somewhere in Missouri to fulfill my nursing career. My interests include science, human anatomy, sports, and spending time with my family and friends. The reason I chose CMU was because of the welcoming atmosphere and the reputable nursing program that is offered. While in high school I was on many sports teams, but my main sports were track, softball, and swimming. I was also a participant in many clubs such as Link Crew, Medical Explorers, and HOSA in which I was a committee leader.

I grew up in the small town of Troy, Mo where I lived on a farm with my mom and dad. I have not decided my major yet because of my many different interests. My three main interests are interior design, teaching, and behavioral analysis. The reason I chose CMU is because of the size and location. I am close enough to home to go visit when I please, but also at a good distance to learn to be on my own. I love the size of CMU because of the personal connection you can get with students and staff at smaller colleges. When I was in high school, my activities consisted of softball and FFA. My love for softball is what pushed me to go to college.

<p><em>I am from Zimbabwe. I come from a big family of 16 children but 7 children are surviving and I am the second last. My family is special in many ways, without their support I would not made it this far. I do realize the challenges of studying at an International University and my family are unable to help me, but it was their support and love which has taken me this far. I am majoring in Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. I am excited about becoming a Nurse and I plan to work as a Registered Nurse after I graduate and at the time I will be skilled to work with patients. I do plan on furthering my education and hopefully become a Geriatrician doctor. I am aware that it will take a lot of saving some finances and a lot hard work goes into achieving those goals. I like a lot of things though I don’t get to do all the things that I like. I like to learn a lot of things and finances constrain me. I am of the view that a person should learn to do all things : the simplest and the hardest. I chose CMU because of it being a Church University. I did not know about it but had relatives who knew about it. Once they told me about the University and I started reading about it, I knew that I wanted to study at University that place importance on serving God and others. One of the values that I uphold or at least try to live by is honesty. I would be nurtured to be that kind of a person at a Christian University. I grew up at a Farm, another thing that I liked was the fact that CMU is situated in rural Missouri. That I thought was amazing – it would give me an environment where people have love for others, still share a smile. I honestly am not involved in activities and this is not because I do not want to. This is because I do not have much time for activities. Much of my time and thoughts are channeled at studyingworking to pay my fees. </em></p>

It has been a joy for me to get to apply that philosophy while I have been studying music education at CMU for the past two years. Soon, I will get to use my career to pass on what my parents taught me about the importance of school. I hope to teach high school band, as well as get my master's degree. I am looking forward to my career as an educator and the wonderful experiences I will get to have sharing the joys of learning with my future students.

I'm from Naperville, IL. My aunt is a graduate from Central Methodist University and someone whom I look up to. Growing up you family struggled to make ends meet and lived paycheck to paycheck sometimes not being able to afford some food, or pay a bill. My parents didn't have the funds to get their own education so they made do with what they could. I am the first in my family to make it one of my goals to get and complete my education no matter what obstacles are in my way. I pay for my education myself and work two jobs to make it possible to get my degree. I'm a senior sociology major with a minor in psychology. I plan to use my degree helping families with members in mental hospitals and making sure they get their questions answered as well as the proper resources they may need during this difficult time. I love to help people, and love spending my free time working with children of all ages and disabilities. I chose CMU because of the individualized education and the one on one ability with the professors. Compared to other schools, CMU focuses on student success to making sure students are on the right path. It's a family here and that's what I need. I I'm currently involved in Alpha Gamma Psi as well as a Residential Assistant in Howard Payne hall.

Even in times of hardship they still found ways to keep a roof over my head. I will be majoring in Accounting and hope to become a Tax Accountant. I've always been interested in finances and so here I am. I chose Central Methodist University because here I see a chance for me to get a great education and become the best I can be. I plan on becoming an active member of the community as well as a part of the esports program.

I'm still a math major, and I'm starting the process of looking at graduate schools for next fall. I had an internship in the area of meteorology this summer and I'm excited to continue pursuing that. I'm as glad I chose CMU going into my senior year as I was at the beginning of freshmen year. The ability to blend my passion through a music minor and my career goals in my major will always be so meaningful to me, and I absolutely would not have had the same experience or opportunity at a bigger school.

My goal is to become a marketing manager after graduating from Central Methodist University. I have a passion for wrestling, art, reading, and being with my friends and family. I chose to come to CMU because of the women's wrestling program, but when I got to campus I fell in love with the school itself. In high school, some would say I was overly active. I was a member of FFA, KAY, NHS, FCA, drama, art, wrestling, manager for the volleyball team, scholars bowl among others. I am currently a member of the CMU women's wrestling team.

From my first moments here, I could tell that the staff and coaches truly cared about me and my future.

After graduation, I'm planning on teaching any middle school, and/or high school bands in Missouri. I chose CMU, because of three reasons; small campus, nice people, and an incredible music program. I've been coming to CMU ever since I went to Music Camp in 7th grade. Since then, I've continued to come for camp, and take trumpet lessons with Dr. Perkins. Every time I go to CMU, I always have friendly faculty, classmates, and the fact everyone knows me by my name, instead of a number, is a huge win. Having all the classes close together is also a huge win.

Although big life changes like that can be intimidating, attending Central Methodist has made it an easy transition. The school has been everything I needed. The culture, opportunities for involvement, relationship with professors, and reputation made my transfer to CMU the best choice!

My sister will be starting college next school year and my parents will soon be empty nesters. Unfortunately, with the pandemic my Dad has been laid off. As you can imagine I was overjoyed to learn about the scholarship opportunity to help me further my academic goals. I am a cheerleader on both the sprit and competition squads here at CMU which consumes a lot of my free time outside of class. When I have time to spare, I love to bake, cook, and make crafts often including sewing, home decor, or making fun gifts for friends and family. I am college Sophomore working on a biology degree with an emphasis in animal sciences. After graduation, I plan to apply to veterinary school with solid goals to become a large animal veterinarian, with a strong focus in the farming industry. I am loving my experience here at CMU! The small town feel of the University offers a close sense of community, and safety while offering the academics and opportunities I want. CMU is a little over two hours away from home allowing me to be far enough away to begin learning and growing on my own, but close enough to drive home to be with family. I absolutely love the atmosphere! My professors are friendly, approachable, encouraging, and make learning fun. I made friends from all over the country and abroad during my first year and am thrilled to be back on campus to continue making more memories.

I’m from Naperville, IL. My aunt is a graduate from Central Methodist University and someone whom I look up to. Growing up you family struggled to make ends meet and lived paycheck to paycheck sometimes not being able to afford some food, or pay a bill. My parents didn’t have the funds to get their own education so they made do with what they could. I am the first in my family to make it one of my goals to get and complete my education no matter what obstacles are in my way. I pay for my education myself and work two jobs to make it possible to get my degree. I’m a senior sociology major with a minor in psychology. I plan to use my degree helping families with members in mental hospitals and making sure they get their questions answered as well as the proper resources they may need during this difficult time. I love to help people, and love spending my free time working with children of all ages and disabilities. I chose CMU because of the individualized education and the one on one ability with the professors. Compared to other schools, CMU focuses on student success to making sure students are on the right path. It’s a family here and that’s what I need. I’m currently involved in Alpha Gamma Psi as well as a Residential Assistant in Howard Payne hall.

I was born in Sedalia, Missouri and was raised by my mom with two siblings. In 2013 my mom met my stepdad and we moved to Blackwater. I graduated from my high school during the pandemic, and though it's been hard I've been looking forward to this fall and starting on getting my major in English. Upon graduation, I plan on using my education to be a high school English teacher. I chose CMU because it was where my favorite teacher attended and wasn’t too big and wasn’t too small. The final decision was a tour of the campus and seeing that I had much better opportunities here compared to the other options I had. During my high school years, I participated in activities that reelected my personal interests. I was a staff writer for my high school newspaper for two years, took art every year, was a member of book club, art club, Forensics: Speech and Debate team, and was a part of stage crew for the spring play this past year. Also, I was an over achiever when it came to English classes being that I graduated with 5 credits more than what was needed. While attending CMU I have the intention to helping on the play every year, keeping up with my art, and doing everything I possibly can with English related opportunities.

Outside of school, I have performed in numerous theatrical productions at Tryps Children's Theatre, Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre, and the MapleWood Barn Theatre. I chose Central Methodist University because I was looking for a smaller, personalized school that would cater to my theatrical interests. After visiting with several faculty members and students at the Little Theatre’s Got Talent Scholarship Competition, I knew that this was the warm, welcoming learning environment I was searching for to obtain my Bachelor of Arts degree. After college, I plan on continuing my acting career as well as being a drama teacher.

League City, TX

I was born June 9, 2000 and shortly thereafter, adopted by my wonderful and supportive parents, Mark and Lisa Jessen.We live in League City, Texas located south of Houston, Texas and just a few miles from NASA, where both my parents work.I have played the sport of soccer since I was four years old and have received many awards throughout high school while playing, however, my biggest goal after high school was to become a student athlete and earn a degree in the Sports Sciences medical field.Central Methodist University (CMU) gave me that opportunity and I am currently working towards my BS in Exercise Science where I have earned Deans List honors for both my Freshman and Sophomore years.Even though I was nervous being so far away from home, my friends and the wonderful staff at CMU have become my family away from home, and I am extremely grateful to CMU for this opportunity, and helping me pay for my college education through scholarship awards, like the Erastus Paul Puckett Scholarship.Once I receive my degree, I plan on working with student athletes at all levels, whether it be through soccer coaching or through physical therapy and strength coaching, I want to help them achieve their goals of becoming the best athlete they can be.

Criminal Justice/Psychology

Holden, MO

Before attending Central, I went to Holden High School in Holden, MO. I grew up there with my dad, mom, and younger brother. While growing up, dirt track racing was always a family hobby. When I was old enough to drive a go kart, I partook in the family hobby. Here at Central, I plan to double major in Criminal Justice and Psychology. With my degrees, I plan to become a police officer and work my way into the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a negotiator. On campus I am involved in multiple teams and activities. Those include Cross Country, Track & Field, Envy Dance Team, Alpha Phi Gamma, and I am also an Ambassador for Central. Being involved in these teams and activities shows just how amazing the Central experience is. The reason that I chose CMU is because of the size and closeness of the campus. I love being able to walk across campus and always see someone I know. This gives campus a family feel.
