The position is a three-year appointment in which she will serve the group as president-elect, president, and past president.

TACRAO is the statewide organization for admissions officers and college registrars. Its purpose is to promote the exchange of ideas on higher education in the state. The organization also works to promote the advancement of higher education and support professional development.

A graduate of the U of M’s College of Education, Howard has been employed with the University for five years. She holds a master of business administration degree, with a concentration in leadership and management, from Belhaven College in Jackson, Miss.

“It speaks to the leadership role that the University of Memphis has exhibited in Tennessee higher education for many years that Kate has been selected to lead the state organization of her colleagues,” said Betty Huff, vice provost for Enrollment Services at the U of M.

“TACRAO will be well served by Kate Howard,” added Brian Meredith, U of M director of Admissions. “The membership will benefit from her enthusiasm for professional development as well as her support of institutional collaboration. She will not only be a competent leader within our state organization, but she will encourage members to be active in regional and national professional organizations as well.”
