CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky.—John Ellis of Campbellsville has been named an admissions counselor at Campbellsville University, according to Dr. Michael V. Carter, president.


Ellis will be serving and recruiting from the Louisville area. Originally from Northern Kentucky, Ellis is a 1996 graduate of Beechwood High School, and a 2001 graduate of Georgetown College. He received a bachelor of arts in communications and business management.


“I really like the university,” said Ellis. “I am becoming more familiar with the processes and departments. Everyone in the admissions office is great to work with. It’s a great team.”


Ellis said he originally applied for a different position at CU. “Dave Walters (vice president for admissions and student services) thought my skills would be better utilized in the admissions department,” said Ellis. “The rest is history.”


Ellis said he is focused now on helping the admissions office meet their goals. “I love becoming part of a prospective student’s reasoning for choosing Campbellsville University,” said Ellis. “I want to add to the cohesiveness by going the extra mile for each person in the office and for each family I interact with.”


Ellis, who said he would eventually like to obtain a master’s degree in business, is the son of Mike and Nancy Ellis of Crestview Hills, Ky. He is married to Luci Salmon Ellis, a 2003 graduate of Campbellsville University.
