Raney Named Director of Student Financial Services

Oklahoma Baptist University recently named Jonna Raney director of student financial services.

Raney, who worked at OBU from 1996-2004, served as financial aid director at St. Gregory’s University from 2004-2007.

“We are thrilled to have Jonna back at OBU and serving in this new role,” said Trent Argo, OBU dean of enrollment management. “Jonna is familiar with our financial aid processes. She brings strong leadership skills with her to this position.”

As head of Student Financial Services, Raney oversees a staff of five, including three counselors, a loan specialist and an endowed scholarships coordinator.

The office coordinates institutional and public aid for OBU students. In 2006-07, OBU dispensed $17.8 million in student aid, including $7.86 million in OBU scholarships.

“OBU is home for me,” said Raney. “I enjoyed my time working here and I am glad to be back.”

Raney earned her bachelor’s degree in public relations, with a minor in business, from OBU in 2002.
