Administrators at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College announced Chase Fairweather as the new Director of Recruitment. Fairweather brings a fun and exciting new energy to the Recruitment Department. Fairweather is originally from Hominy, Okla.
He attended NEO from 2009-2011 where he graduated with his Associate’s Degree in Natural Resources and Ecology Management. He then went on to obtain his Bachelor’s Degree from Oklahoma State University and later his Master’s from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He and his family have lived in Miami for the past five years. They moved here in 2016 when a college recruiter position became open in the NEO Recruitment Office.
“Being a college recruiter broke me out of my shell and allowed me to improve my public speaking skills and enhance my drive to help students succeed,” said Fairweather.
Following his time in recruitment, Fairweather became the Natural Resources and Ecology Management instructor in 2017. He taught for three years before returning as the Director of Recruitment. “I have a passion for helping students further their education and can’t wait to be just one of the many assets for their future successes,” Fairweather added.
“My goal is to help students fuel their lives with passion and help them gain the knowledge they need to make themselves and this world a better place.” Fairweather has been married to his wife Kyrie for 5 years. They have a two-year-old son, J Frazier and they hope he will attend one day just like them. If they are not at NEO you can find them helping with the youth program at First Christian Church or enjoying the outdoors.
“I am very excited to have Chase as a part of the Recruitment team,” said Amy Ishmael, Vice President of Student Affairs. “He will be a great asset when it comes to increasing our enrollment.”
