Williams Baptist University has named Aaron Andrews to the position of bursar. Andrews, a 16-year veteran of WBU, had been serving as interim bursar since earlier this year. In the position, he oversees the financial affairs of the university.
“We asked Mr. Andrews to fill a critical position in our business office, and he quickly proved adept at everything he was called upon to do,” said Dr. Doug Walker, vice president for advancement and operations. “His organizational ability, people skills and hard work serve him and the institution very well. We are delighted to have him in the role of bursar on a permanent basis.”
Andrews has served at WBU since 2003, and he was previously director of annual giving and alumni relations. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Hannibal-LaGrange University and a master’s in Christian education from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
“I am excited to take on new responsibilities and new opportunities with this position. We have a great business office at Williams with a committed, experienced staff that believes passionately in the work of Christian higher education. It is a pleasure to work alongside them in serving WBU and its students,” Andrews said.
Andrews and his wife, Jenny, have two sons, and the family lives in Walnut Ridge.
