There are few better suited for the job of recruiting students to Central Methodist University than a former student who had an excellent experience there.
Lexie Enyeart, a Salisbury native who received a bachelor’s degree in education from Central in 2016, is a perfect example. She recently joined the CMU Admissions team as an admissions representative in hope of guiding prospective students to attend the same campus she views as the foundation of her success.
“Being an alumna is something I take pride in,” Enyeart said. “When I was a student here, I loved how the school, students, and employees – they all felt like one big family. When God presented me with the opportunity to come back to CMU's family, I couldn't say no. I want every student to have the same college experience and quality that I had, and the best way to have that is through CMU.”
As an admissions representative, Enyeart will work to recruit prospective students within her assigned territory – northeast Missouri, and regularly communicate with the students and their families. Additionally, she will develop relationships with various high school representatives, and spend time traveling to college fairs and other special events.
“We continue to experience strong metrics as we drive forward with our efforts,” said Dr. Joe Parisi, vice president for enrollment management. “Our momentum is attracting great people and I’m delighted to welcome Lexie as our latest team member. Her passion for assisting students and energy are unprecedented, and she has the drive to be one of our best."
During her time as a student at CMU, Enyeart was both a student ambassador and a peer tutor/writing assistant. After graduation, she was a third grade teacher at St. Pius X in Moberly. She also substitute taught for Brunswick High School, and worked part time for Richards Farms Inc. in Keytesville as a record keeper.
She continues a part-time job through her own business, Mix Masters, as the owner and disc jockey for weddings, parties, and special events.
