Carter named major gifts officer at PSU

Dr. Brad Hodson, Pittsburg State University vice president for advancement, announced today the appointment of Ellen Carter as the major gifts officer serving the colleges of Education and Arts and Sciences. Carter’s appointment will become effective at the end of the current academic year.

Hodson said the comments submitted by members of the campus community during the search process were overwhelmingly positive about the candidate.

“As we listened to the comments during the campus interviews,” Hodson said, “it was clear that Ellen has been and continues to be a very valuable asset to Pittsburg State University. Her ability to form and nurture strong relationships with constituents will serve the university well as she focuses her energies on a whole new set of challenges related to increasing private support for the College of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences.”

Carter has worked in the PSU Office of Public Relations for the past 23 years and has served as director of the office since 1986. Carter holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a master’s degree in education from Pittsburg State University. Before joining the PSU staff, she worked as an information specialist for the Missouri Department of Agriculture, as the education writer for the Pittsburg Morning Sun and then as the promotions and marketing director for Northpark Mall in Joplin.

Carter and her husband, Greg, live in Joplin, Mo.
