Brett Meeker has joined the university as Director of Concurrent Enrollment, overseeing the dual-credit partnership with area high schools.

Meeker graduated from MSSU in ’01 with a Bachelor of Science in Education. She obtained her juris doctor from the University of Missouri in 2004 and spent 12 years with the Missouri State Public Defender System’s trial office in Carthage, Mo.

“I am very excited to return to Missouri Southern,” she said. “I have always enjoyed working with high-school students and this position gives me an excellent opportunity to share all the wonderful opportunities this university has to offer.”

Meeker replaces Julie Wengert, who recently accepted the position of Dean of Student Success and Support at Missouri Southern.
