|Ball Named New V-P at Monmouth College
|Molly Ball, executive director of development at Kalamazoo College in Michigan, has been named vice president for development and college relations at Monmouth College.
"Molly's colleagues and supervisors from Kalamazoo provided exceptional praise for a career that is well-begun," said Monmouth College president Mauri Ditzler. "I look forward to welcoming Molly to our team when she begins work on Jan. 1."
Ball, who has held her recent position since 2007, directs a 10-person development staff at Kalamazoo that is responsible for $5 million in yearly fundraising. Now in her sixth year at the national liberal arts college, she previously served as a major gift officer and senior major gift officer. Prior to entering the world of higher education, she worked for the Michigan Farm Bureau, the Future Farmers of America (FFA) Foundation and the National FFA Foundation.
At Monmouth, she will be responsible for creating and implementing a plan for strengthening the college's advancement efforts in fundraising, alumni programs and strategic communications.
Ball graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor's degree in agriculture and natural resources communications. Her emphasis was agribusiness management and marketing. She also was certified as a fundraising manager through coursework at the Indiana University Center of Philanthropy.
Ball and her husband, Kevin, who live in Vicksburg, Mich., have two children.
Monmouth College was assisted in its search by the Boston-based executive search firm of Isaacson, Miller, which "recruited a superb field of well-qualified candidates," according to Ditzler.
