Marshall employee to head up state organization

Dr. Beth Wolfe, director of continuing education at Marshall University, assumed the position of president of the West Virginia Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers (WVACRAO) last month at the group’s annual conference at Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, West Virginia.

As president, she will lead the organization’s efforts over the next year, including spearheading the planning of the annual conference.

“Beth’s proven leadership and passion for higher education ignited the WVACRAO executive committee when she joined as president-elect last year,” said WVACRAO Past President Leah Ripley, who is associate director of admissions at West Virginia Wesleyan College. “We are thrilled with the work she has already begun and look forward to her ideas and guidance in the coming year.”

Wolfe was elected president-elect at the 2016 conference and served on the organization’s executive committee. A member of the organization for eight years, she was the 2016 recipient of the organization’s Rick Snow Young Professional Award and is a popular speaker at the organization’s conference.
