My new position as the V.P. for College Advancement at Central Christian College of Kansas has proven to be an exciting ride so far. One of the pieces that I have been able to put into place is the hiring of a new Director of Alumni and Family Relations. This is a position that is important to the college; not just for past students, but for current students as they look forward to graduating and growing after Central.
It is my pleasure to announce that Rochelle Cecil has taken up the post as the Director of Alumni and Family Relations here at Central. Most recently, Rochelle served as the Athletic and Transfer Coordinator in Admissions where she has held this position since February.
Prior to her work at Central, Rochelle graduated from Houghton College, a small, Christian liberal arts college in the hamlet of Houghton, New York. At Houghton, Rochelle studied English and Communications and recently graduated with her Bachelor of Arts. She grew up just 30 miles east of McPherson in Hillsboro, Kansas.
She brings to the table knowledge of social media, video editing, and graphic design, as well as a history of speaking with Alumni and supporters of colleges through her work with Houghton’s team.
Rochelle has held a wide variety of leadership positions from supervisor at Phonathon, to resident assistant, to class president, giving her the right mix of knowledge and experience to lead the alumni of Central into better relationships.
In her new position, Rochelle will work to establish and renew relationships with our alumni and other friends of Central, as well as plan events to bring alumni back to campus. Her education and experiences bring to the college a unique understanding of communications and organizational planning that will assist the Development Team to reach a larger target audience.
“I’m excited to see the relationships that I’ll be able to build with the families and alumni of Central,” Rochelle said. “I can’t wait to see what comes out of new bridges and paths that are yet to be forged in this area.”
