Faculty & staff
Jennifer Bondurant of Auxvasse, MO is now leading the marketing office of Westminster College in her new position as Executive Director of Marketing & Strategic Communication.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jenny as head of our marketing team," says Westminster President Dr. George B. Forsythe. "She brings a wealth of experience to the position as well as a deep understanding of the mission, values and background of the College. Her qualifications and background have allowed her to hit the ground running here and the College is already reaping the rewards of her leadership."
Previously, Bondurant divided her professional time between public relations/marketing and writing and editing.
She operated her own public relations/marketing firm, CatchPhrase Communications, and served as editor for Jefferson City Magazine, a bi-monthly publication.
Her client list included Westminster College, Landmark Bank, Spa Shiki at The Lodge of the Four Seasons, The Club at Porto Cima, Columbia College and The Ovid Bell Press.
"Westminster is a true family for students and alumni and it's an honor to take on this role for the College," says Bondurant. "From Westminster's focus on global education to our dedication to a high quality, engaging academic experience, I look forward to sharing the College's longstanding history and vision for the future as we help today's students achieve success-from classroom to career."
Bondurant was recognized as a "40 under 40" honoree in 2004 by the Jefferson City Business Times. She also was a nominee for the Zonta's Women of Achievement Award in 2006.
She continues to serve as Chair of a not-for-profit organization she founded in 2007, the Auxvasse Creative Arts Program. This program fosters creativity and the expansion of cultural horizons for children and families in rural Callaway County.
Bondurant holds an undergraduate degree in English from Westminster College and a master's degree in creative writing (fiction) from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
