William Peace University Promotes Michelle Hemmer
To Assistant Director Of Financial Aid
Four-Year Baccalaureate University Promotes Financial Expert
From Within To Serve As Assistant Director Of Financial Aid
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 promoted to serve as the assistant director of financial aid for the institution’s Office of Financial Aid. In her position, Hemmer will be responsible for coordinating, awarding and processing federal, state and institutional student aid programs. These efforts will include overseeing grants, scholarships and loans, resolving issues of counseling services, and discussing financial aid awards, eligibility, processes and alternative sources, and methods of financing education costs. In addition, she will represent the Office of Financial Aid in administrative and policy matters along with the management of operations for the office in the absence of the director of financial aid.
Previously Hemmer served as William Peace University’s financial aid advisor and loan coordinator, where she consulted with students and parents on questions and issues related specifically to financial aid, loans and monetary assistance for tuition, and other university expenses. In that position, she focused her efforts on improving operational efficiencies and implementing the institution’s newest financial aid system.
Hemmer earned a double major in business management and human resource management from Barton College in Wilson, N.C. Prior to joining William Peace University, she worked for North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount as a financial advisor. Additionally, she is a member of the North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NCASFAA).
“For current and prospective students and their families, it is essential that they all understand the financial component of higher education, and have a go-to resource to turn to for all financial aid, loan and monetary concerns and questions,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “We are proud of the work Michelle has done over the years and regard her as a true asset in the Office of Financial Aid, as she understands the needs of our students and how best to address and resolve each concern.”
“The expenses associated with higher education are only one component of the college experience, but understanding that piece is extremely important for all students,” said Hemmer. “I am honored to assume the position of assistant director of financial aid and further support and guide our students through the financial aid process.”
