MARSHA LASHLEY NAMED NAIA FACULTY ATHLETICS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE YEAR Missouri Valley College Faculty Athletics Representative, Marsha Lashley, was named the 2020 NAIA Wally Schwartz Faculty Athletics Representative of the Year at the NAIA’s National Awards Day. The award honors past Vice President of Legislative Services, Wally Schwartz, and is given to a Faculty Athletics Representative who exemplifies the loyalty, enthusiasm, and honesty that Wally Schwartz had, and still has, shown on behalf of the NAIA. The award is given at the conference, independent, and national level. Lashley began working at Missouri Valley in 1983 and spent the first 10 years of her career in Student Affairs as the Director of Housing. She moved to the academic side of campus in 1993 and became the Registrar shortly thereafter. Processing eligibility paperwork came with the position and Marsha requested that her role shift to the dual-duty setup of Registrar and FAR. She then followed the footsteps of Dr. Phyllis O’Daniels and became the Heart of America FAR around 2011. FALL 2020 ENROLLMENT Missouri Valley College’s fall 2020 enrollment was 1,398. Of those 1,398 students, 582 were from Missouri, 292 were international students and the remainder were from out of state. The student body was made up of students from 44 states and 50 countries. The College welcomed freshmen and transfer students with a virtual student orientation.
