Websites have become the Number One advertising and communications tool for colleges across the country, and Central Methodist University’s website is no exception. It takes a detail-oriented and multi-talented individual to manage a website, and CMU is pleased to announce that Jessi Harper has joined its team as webmaster.

Harper, from Moberly, has a diverse set of skills ranging from web development, web design and content management to graphic design. Coming to CMU from Central Christian College of the Bible, she also has experience in academic services and financial aid.
