Cedarville, Ohio—Roscoe Smith, associate vice president for enrollment management at Cedarville University, recently received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals. This award recognizes significant contributions to the admissions or counseling professions.

Known around campus for his smile, helpfulness and passion for Christian education, Smith has served at Cedarville for more than 26 years. During that time, he has positively influenced many students and parents as they worked their way through the admissions process.

“All one has to do,” says Amy Holderby, associate director of admissions, “is watch him during a presentation and see the joy he possesses when he shares what God is doing at Cedarville.”

Smith first came to Cedarville in 1978 as a freshman and began working in admissions in 1982 following his graduation. In 1986, he enrolled full-time in a graduate program at Wright State University and received an M.B.A. before returning to Cedarville.

In his current position, Smith partners with the vice president for enrollment management and marketing to advance recruitment, marketing, retention and diversity goals.

“I work at Cedarville because I believe there is no better Christian college,” says Smith. “My years as a student here shaped my life forever, and I enjoy helping others share in that kind of life-altering experience.”

Smith lives in Cedarville with his wife, Rhonda, and his two children, Kalie and Jaden.
