Cumberlands Honors Retiree Emily Meadors


Dr. Jim Taylor, President of UC, congratulates Emily Meadors on her years of service to UC and her retirement at the UC Annual Faculty and Staff Dinner.

Williamsburg, Ky. - University of the Cumberlands (UC) honored Emily Meadors’ retirement as the Registrar at its 19th annual Faculty-Staff Dinner on April 15.

Since joining the staff of Cumberland College (now University of the Cumberlands) in 1971, Emily Meadors has worked with students from admission to graduation, first in her capacity as secretary in Admissions and Development, then as assistant in the Admissions Office, and, ultimately, as Registrar. As Registrar, Meadors has been a constant source of information for students and faculty during the advising process.

As Registrar, she welcomes prospective freshmen and transfer students and helps them to determine how their AP credit or previous college classes will count towards degree requirements at Cumberland. For many years she also helped incoming freshmen as a STRIPE in the INSIGHTS program. In 2007, she was honored with the University of the Cumberlands Service Award, given annually to a full-time staff member dedicated to the care and concern of other members of the university community.

Meadors’ commitment to service is not limited to the campus. She serves her church by helping with bible school and the children’s church program, and by being an active member of the woman’s group. She quickly offers assistance when fellow church members face difficult times. Additionally, she serves as secretary for the William Whitley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Meadors’ plans for retirement include continuing her volunteer service, gardening, traveling with her husband, Don, and spending as much time as possible with her son, Jeff, her daughter-in-law, Jennifer, and her three granddaughters—Rachel, Amber, and Emily.
