Hohman named staff member of the year at Manchester

Adam HohmanA 2001 Manchester University graduate who “bleeds Black and Gold” has been named the Christopher W. Garber Staff Member of the Year.

The award recognizes a staff member who exemplifies the Manchester mission. Nominated by their colleagues, the recipients are respected by co-workers and loyal to the University.

The award is named for the late Chris Garber, who was a problem-solver with a positive attitude and encouraged others along the way.

 “We often say that the world needs more Manchester graduates. No one works harder to make that a reality than Adam Hohman, assistant vice president for enrollment and marketing,” said President Dave McFadden.

Since 2004, when Hohman became Manchester’s assistant director of admissions, he put his heart and soul into recruiting students and welcoming them to MU.

From assistant director, the North Manchester resident moved up to associate director of operations for admissions in 2008 and became director of admissions in 2011. Since 2015, Hohman has served at the cabinet level as an assistant vice president for admissions and marketing. 

 “Adam lives and breathes Manchester,” wrote one of several nominations submitted for Hohman. “He has been a mentor for me. He is extremely passionate about the University mission and it shows when he talks with students, families and co-workers.”

“You inspire all of us to discover our best selves each day,” McFadden said before presenting the award. “Because you are here, Manchester is a better place – and so is the world. Congratulations.”

Hohman is a native of Elkhart, Ind.

This is the third year for the award. The first two recipients were Senior Director of Auxiliary Services Alexis Young and Admissions Administrative Assistant Jill Biehl.
