Centre College has announced that Bob Nesmith, director of admission at the institution since 2005, is being promoted to dean of admission and student financial planning.
Nesmith will assume leadership of the Centre student recruitment effort from Carey Thompson, who has accepted the position of vice president for Enrollment and Communications and dean of admission at Rhodes College in Memphis.
Nesmith has worked in the Centre Office of Admission since 1995. He is a leader in the admission profession in Kentucky and is active in regional and national associations. Nesmith is a 1991 graduate of Centre and has pursued advanced study in English at the University of Virginia and the University of Kentucky.
Centre president John Roush said of him, “We are fortunate to have a person of Bob’s ability and experience to fill this key role. I am confident that Bob and his team will be able to sustain the remarkable momentum we have enjoyed over the last decade plus.”
