Dixon Named New Vice President

Brad-Dixon.jpgBrad Dixon is no stranger to Central Methodist University’s senior leadership team. But now he comes to the table with a new title -- vice president for student life.

Dixon earned his bachelor’s degree from Central in 2007. His promotion was one of four big pieces to an administrative restructuring announced recently by President Roger Drake.

In addition to Dixon’s promotion, longtime basketball coach Jeff Sherman became the new athletics director. Sherman’s son and assistant coach, Matt Sherman, will take over as head coach of the Eagles. In addition, athletics will now report to Dr. Joe Parisi, vice president for enrollment management.

President Roger Drake was quick to praise Dixon and the other leaders.

“We have a great depth of leadership here to take us into the future," Drake said. “I’m looking forward to what’s next.”

Dixon served previously as Central’s dean of students and associate dean. He was hired at Central in 2015.

Dixon and his wife, Natalie, also a CMU graduate, are the parents of two children, Hayden and Henley. Dixon’s parents, Joe and Janet Dixon, live in Success, Mo.
