“Handling admissions for an institute of higher learning has appealed to me since my college days, as it provides me with an opportunity to assist others in defining their goals and reach their full potential,” said Marshall. “I am very excited to be part of William Peace University and look forward to actively promoting and participating in the School of Professional Studies as we work to open the door for students who want to explore all the options available for taking classes on their own schedules to fulfill personal or professional goals.”
“The admissions office at our university plays a critical role in helping our incoming students understand their responsibilities as they pursue their degrees,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Bobby’s experience and determination to produce results will help our efforts in the School of Professional Studies immensely for recruiting efforts and providing assistance and information about this growing department.”
Marshall earned a bachelor’s degree in educational studies from Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Fla. He serves as the president of the Raleigh-Durham chapter of the Bethune-Cookman Alumni Association.
