Stephanie C. Shafer of Waynesboro, Va., has been named director of admissions for undergraduate programs at Eastern Mennonite University. She began her new assignment at EMU Nov. 8, 2004.

Shafer succeeds Lawrence W. (Laurie) Miller, who has become director of student programs and new student orientation at EMU.

The appointment was announced by Shirley B. Yoder, vice president for enrollment and marketing at EMU.

Shafer brings ten years experience in admissions to her new role, Yoder noted. She worked in the admissions office at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton and quickly rose to the level of associate director.

She has spent the past six years as dean of admissions at Stuart Hall, a college preparatory school in Staunton owned by the Episcopal Church. “This experience has given her direct insight into the millennial students and their parents,” Yoder said.

She is a graduate of James Madison University and is working towards completing an MBA degree.

“In addition to her experience we were attracted to Stephanie for her active listening, her caring personality, her energy and enthusiasm for the admissions profession,” Yoder said.

She is an active member of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Buena Vista, Va.
