Dawn Meadows, formerly Warner’s Dean of Students has now been promoted to the brand new position of Vice President of Student Life.
“I will be involved with more aspects of the student experience here including athletics, residential life, student life, and wellness,” Meadows said.
Before her five years of working in Student Life, Meadows was a professor at Warner teaching Bible and Theology classes, but her history with Warner goes back further than that.
Meadows received her Bachelor’s in Biblical Studies from Warner, graduating in 1993.
“When I went to college here, I never would have dreamed I would be doing the work I do now,” Meadows said. “I see how God used that time to start getting me ready for now.”
While attending Warner, Meadows even then worked in Student Life as an Resident Assistant. She also was part of “Collegiate Chorale”, a traveling choir that Warner had at the time which performed at different churches every Sunday.
She also met her husband, Dean Meadows, controller at Warner, during her time as a student.
Now as Warner’s Vice President of Student Life, Meadows says her favorite part of working at Warner is the students.
“I love seeing students go through the journey of college, achieve their goals, and surprise themselves with how much they’re capable of.”
Meadows has two children of which one, Bradley Meadows, is currently attending Warner.
“I never told my kids they had to come [to Warner],” Meadows said, adding that it is important to her that her kids find the best schools for what they need.
Meadows is also currently working on her doctorate in Educational Leadership through Liberty University, so she does not have much free time. She loves movies though, especially superhero movies and Harry Potter. She also loves to travel and visit new places when she can.
Meadows has a huge heart for Warner’s students.
“I would like for students today to use their years in college to discover who they were created to be and how much God loves them.”
