Tabor College appoints Myers dean of admissions

Grant MyersGrant Myers, a 2007 graduate of Tabor College, returns to campus as the dean of admissions. Myers, wife Stacie and their two children will move to Hillsboro from St. Louis, Mo., to begin the new role June 1.

“This is an excellent opportunity for me professionally,” Myers said. “The challenge of bringing future students from all areas, backgrounds and cultures to Tabor is exciting. I look forward to leading an excellent admissions team and influencing lives of students.”

Rusty Allen, vice president of enrollment management and athletics, said he is excited to have Myers join the admissions staff.

“I have had the opportunity to watch Grant grow through Tabor’s undergraduate and MBA programs and enjoyed following his career after school,” Allen said. “He brings experience and leadership as well as an understanding of Tabor’s community and value to our students.”

Following completion of his bachelor’s degree, Myers worked as a graduate assistant for Tabor’s football program while earning an MBA in leadership from Tabor College Wichita. Part of his work included player recruit­ment.

Myers calls his time at Tabor a turning point in his life. He followed friends from California to play football, but found more than a valuable athletic experience.

“I feel strongly about Tabor’s mission to prepare people for a life of learning, work and service for Christ and His kingdom,” Myers said. “This was something that Tabor did for me and is incredibly important for life after Tabor College.

“The integrity and leadership that is instilled by professors, administration, coaches, peers and community members ensures students will have a successful professional career in their chosen fields.”

Myers said he looks forward to his return to Tabor and Hillsboro.

“We have many wonderful friends in the Tabor College community that we are excited to reconnect with,” Myers said. “Stacie is also a Tabor College alum, so naturally she is very excited to return to Hillsboro.”

Most recently, Myers has been working as regional director of sales and marketing for American Income Life. In the role, he recruited and trained new sales staff and implemented new training programs and recruiting methods. While in the position, he saw a 700 percent increase in growth and revenue for the territory.
