Jeri Candor has joined the development and college relations staff at Monmouth College as an associate development officer.
Candor comes to Monmouth with 16 years of experience in higher education, split between development and admissions work at Knox College. Most recently, she served as assistant director of the Knox Fund and parent relations. In her new position, she will work with Monmouth College alumni and friends in eight states, as well as the areas of Chicago and St. Louis.
“Jeri’s experience with donors and supporters of higher education will enable her smooth transition to major gift fundraising,” said Steve Bloomer, vice president of development and college relations. “Jeri’s energy and passion for the work at hand will contribute nicely to our team efforts and to her professional success.”
“I’m really excited to be at Monmouth,” said Candor. “My passion is working with people and building relationships, and this position provides the unique opportunity to build genuine relationships with donors that also benefit the institution.”
Candor, who recently completed a degree at Western Illinois University, lives in Cameron with her husband, Tom. They have five adult children.
