Reconnecting alumni to their fond memories of Central Methodist University is something CMU’s office of advancement and alumni relations does quite well. So it is no surprise that “connecting people” is at the top of the list among the skills and talents of the office’s newest employee, Josh McCarroll.

McCarroll is the new assistant director of affinity giving, and he has been connecting people most of his professional career. McCarroll most recently was involved in state and local campaign fund-raising and running political campaigns.

“I am attracted to Central because of the campus environment and the strong feeling alums continue to hold in their hearts for CMU,” he said. “I’m happy to get started and help connect our alums to their cherished memories of Central.”

Dr. Josh Jacobs, vice president for advancement and alumni relations, said there are numerous ways people are connected to Central – class year, major, athletics, Greek, or student organizations, and McCarroll will be looking in that direction.

“We are excited for Josh to join our team and increase our ability to focus on each of these connection points,” Jacobs said. “I’m certain he will strengthen the relationships individuals have with Central moving forward.”

McCarroll, who lives in Columbia, holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Culver-Stockton College.
