St. Louis Graduates welcomes new leadership!

St. Louis Graduates’ Steering Committee welcomes Trent Ball and Melissa Findley as Co-Chairs! Trent is Assistant Vice President for Academic Diversity and Outreach at Southeast Missouri State University. Melissa is Executive Director of Missouri Scholarship & Loan Foundation.

Dr. Alan Byrd of the University of Missouri-St. Louis and Allison Williams of Wyman are transitioning out of the Co-Chair roles after five years of service, a time in which St. Louis Graduates has experienced incredible growth including the designation as one of 26 Talent Hubs by Lumina and Kresge Foundations and the creation of the Postsecondary Equity Network of colleges and universities working collaboratively to eliminate equity gaps. We are grateful for their leadership!
