Changes in WBC Admissions Office



The admissions office at Williams Baptist College has undergone a few changes and has seen some new faces through the course of the summer.  The office has added a new assistant director of admissions and two new admissions counselors.

John Mayberry, a 2009 Williams graduate, has been an admissions counselor for the past three years.  Over the summer, however, he was promoted to the position of assistant director of admissions.

“John’s responsibilities are being expanded,” said director of admissions, Andrew Watson.  “He will have a more active role in training counselors and he has already proven to be an excellent recruiter.  His knowledge and experience will be beneficial as the college continues to grow.”

“It is an honor to see that my hard work, perseverance and consistency have paid off and been noticed,” remarked Mayberry.

Ashley Newman, a 2013 WBC alum, was added to the office as an admissions counselor.

“We are excited to have Ashely as part of the team,” noted Watson.  “She does an excellent job of portraying the community atmosphere that makes Williams.  Ashley will encounter many high school students and I am confident she will do a great job of communicating what an exceptional college we have.”

An out-of-state admissions counselor has also been added to the group.  Bobby Wheeler, another 2013 Williams graduate, took on the position this past July.

“Bobby is another counselor who will be great at expressing what college life is like at WBC,” stated Watson.  “Bobby’s primary focus will be recruiting students from surrounding states, like Missouri, Texas and Tennessee.  He will also attend Christian college fairs as well as visit churches.”

The out-of-state admissions counselor is a part of Williams’s Diamond Destiny Plan to expand enrollment.  Although the position was not projected to be created until the summer of 2014, the college chose to add the spot this year.

Williams is a four-year, liberal arts college at Walnut Ridge, Ark.
