Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) has hired four new people in various departments of the college, filling three positions and creating one new position.
Jenifer Wright ‘17, previously with the Terre Haute REX prospect baseball team, is the director of annual giving and Naomi Campbell, formerly at Indiana State University (ISU), is an admissions counselor. Jaret Morlan ’20 is a staff accountant and Marissa Schmitter from the Tribune-Star is the content marketing specialist, a new title.
Wright will ensure The Woods meets its financial goals through fundraising and event coordination. She brings nine years of fundraising experience to the College. At REX, she was responsible for community relations, fiscal management and more. She is a 2017 graduate of SMWC with a business finance degree. She began her new role on June 15.
Campbell comes from ISU where she was an administrative assistant for the Bayh College of Education. She graduated with a BFA in graphic design and art history from ISU in 2013, and she plans to graduate with her master’s in student affairs and higher education from ISU in July. She previously owned her own graphic design business.
She began as an admissions counselor in May at SMWC where she will be working with applicants and inquiries for the Woods Online and Master of Leadership Development programs. This includes getting students registered and connected with financial aid. Campbell, who has 15 years of dance training, will also serve as SMWC’s dance team coach.
Morlan graduated from SMWC in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a minor in leadership. He is working in the business office where he was a student worker for over two years. He began on June 1.
Schmitter, an Indiana State University graduate with a communication degree, joined the SMWC team in June after three years at the Tribune-Star. As content marketing specialist, she will engage alumni, current and perspective students through social media, written and visual stories.
This position was created as the college’s marketing department has evolved with the growth of SMWC. This includes additions of academic and athletic programs and achieving record enrollment numbers.
