Financial Expert With Three Years Experience Joins Four-Year Baccalaureate University
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Michelle Hemmer has been named its new financial aid advisor and loan coordinator. In this position, Hemmer will consult with students and their parents or guardians with questions and issues they have regarding financial aid, loans and other monetary assistance they receive to pay for their tuition and other expenses at the university. She will review and keep up to date all federal and state regulations that affect financial aid and loan policy for the university as well. With nearly three years of professional industry experience, Hemmer assumes her new position after holding the same role at North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount. She is a member of the North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NCASFAA). Hemmer earned a double major in business management and human resource management from Barton College in Wilson, N.C.
"Students and their families sometimes need expert advice when applying and understanding the resources available for financial aid," said Dr. Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. "Michelle brings the qualities needed to help them understand how they can afford tuition at William Peace University, what is involved in the payment process and how to proceed properly. I welcome her contributions to our university and its students."
A native of Forestville, Md., Hemmer resides in Wilson, N.C., with her boyfriend.
