February 2019 Update: My role as Special Assistant for Marketing to the President of Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri, has been completed. My objectives were to get a new brand rolled out, help the campus better understand and embrace marketing, determine and craft the best configuration for the marketing department, and find a person to take over as Director of Marketing.
