Trent Argo, Oklahoma Baptist University's dean of enrollment management, recently was elected president of the National Association of Baptist Enrollment Professionals.
The organization's annual conference was in late July in Arkadelphia, Ark. Oklahoma Baptist University admissions staff co-hosted the event with the admissions staff of Ouachita Baptist University.
"I am very proud that Trent has been recognized for his contribution to the profession by election to the post of NABEP president," said Dr. Deborah Blue, OBU's senior vice president for academic affairs. "This is an honor which also carries with it tremendous responsibility."
In addition to the NABEP honor, Argo was invited to co-present a session at the annual Noel-Levitz National Symposium on Student Recruitment, Marketing and Retention. OBU is in the second year of working with Noel-Levitz, a national student recruitment firm. During the July symposium in Chicago, Ill., Argo and James Steen, OBU's Noel-Levitz recruitment consultant, presented steps the university has used to increase the university's overall enrollment.
Other OBU staff attending the symposium were Bruce Perkins, director of admissions; Carrie Myles, associate director of admissions; and Monica Mullins, assistant director of enrollment management and director of student success.
