Lonnie Vandeventer —
I would like to welcome Lonnie Vandeventer as our new AGS Alumni Director. Lonnie received his BS in Management from Indiana Wesleyan University in December 2003. He also earned his associate’s degree in Business from IWU in May 2002.
Lonnie was the recipient of the Outstanding Professional Award in both instances. Lonnie is currently pursuing his MBA as well.
Lonnie brings over 30 years of sales and sales management experience to his new role. Lonnie also recently worked with the University of Phoenix-Indianapolis Campus as an Enrollment Counselor and with Prepress Training Solution, Bloomington, IN, in sales and customer service of online, interactive training tutorial specific to the print and graphic design industry working with customers worldwide.
Lonnie comes to IWU with a love for the university first encouraged by his son Clark who was a student at the time and is now a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Excellence. His participation in AGS in pursuit of his own degree also fostered a dream to serve the Lord at IWU in some capacity. He forecast his future aspirations to his peers during a class assignment in 2002. Six years later that dream has been realized as he takes on this role.
Lonnie and Janet plan to move to the Marion area from Martinsville, IN.
