Kim Weddle ’00 was named executive director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving last fall. Weddle, longtime Missouri Western employee, had been serving as director of

Development since January 2015.

“I’m excited about my new role and the opportunity to meet even more of my fellow Griffons,” Weddle said.

The position is new for Missouri Western, as it expands the role of the Alumni Relations director to include the coordination of the annual fund. Weddle noted that many universities have similar positions in their University Advancement divisions.

“I am looking forward to helping alumni connect with Missouri Western,” she said. “I know the impact that this university had on my life, and I know it did the same for many others. I want to work to make that impact continue because our alumni are our greatest supporters.”
