Kidd Hired as Coordinator in Neosho

Central Methodist University’s Neosho location will start the new year with a new member of the staff for the College of Graduate and Extended Studies (CGES). Suzi Kidd was recently hired as the area’s new regional coordinator, working in Neosho, where CMU partners with Crowder College.

In her role, Kidd will be responsible for recruiting and providing student support and advising to online degree-seeking students, as well as support to designated community college partners. She will specifically work closely with students in the RN to BSN program and Health Sciences.

“I’m excited to start my journey with Central Methodist University,” she said.

Prior to joining the CMU staff, Kidd spent 27 years with the Missouri Division of Youth Services, where she was most recently a service coordinator supervisor in the juvenile justice department. She has also served as an adjunct professor at Crowder since 2010, teaching sociology.

Kidd earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Missouri State University (then Southwest Missouri State) before earning a master’s degree in criminal justice administration from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.

Her life outside work also involves her background in counselling and working with at-risk youth, as Kidd is “immersed in the Boy Scouts of America program.” With a son who is “almost an Eagle Scout,” she has served as an assistant scoutmaster and committee member for a long time and is now the scoutmaster for a new girls’ troop. Aside from the Boy Scouts, her hobbies include triathlons and camping.

Kidd resides in Neosho with her husband, Roger, and son, Ryan.
