|Student life office welcomes new staff, new responsibilities
RELEASED: July 7, 2005
DANVILLE, KYCentre College's Student Life Office recently announced that Patrick Noltemeyer '01 has accepted a new position as director of volunteer service and Bonner Program coordinator, and Josh Schutts has joined the staff as director of Greek life.
Noltemeyer joined Centre's staff in 2003 as the director of Greek life. His new responsibilities include supervising student service organizationsC.A.R.E. (Centre Action Reaches Everyone), L.I.F.T. (Learning is Fun Together), and Habitat for Humanity, among others. He will also administer the Bonner Program on campus, a community service scholarship program that provides enrichment and connection activities for students. Students involved in this program spend 10 hours per week and a couple summers of their college career engaged in service.
"We're really trying to develop a mindset within Centre students that service is more than just whitewashing a fence or trimming someone's lawn," Noltemeyer says. "My goal is to establish civic engagement as a practice for all students. What would happen if everyone did just one more thing each day to try and improve someone's life?"
Noltemeyer received his B.A. in psychology from Centre in 2001 and completed a M.A. in student affairs at the University of Kentucky in 2004.
Schutts comes to Centre from the University of Southern Mississippi, where he received a B.S. in business administration in 2003 and an M.Ed. in college student personnel in 2004.
Schutts will advise Centre's four sororities and five fraternities. He will plan various leadership and service opportunities and serve as a liaison between the organizations and college administration.
"I look forward to getting to know the students and the awesome people I work with in student life," Schutts says. "I'm excited about coming up with new ideas to help the Greek organizations continue on a path of excellence. I also want to be a person that students can come to with any issue."
