Robin and I live on the farm that has been in the Wilmes family for 95 years, and our roots run deep in the Maryville – and Northwest – community. It’s very easy to promote Northwest when you see outstanding young people receiving an exceptional education year after year. Before retiring and during my tenure at the U.S.D.A., as job openings became available I always looked to Northwest graduates to fill those vacancies. I was aware the quality of education that a Northwest graduate received would provide me with an excellent employee. Robin teaches in the Maryville School District and appreciates her Northwest education. Our daughter, Meredith, is a proud Bearcat who graduated in 2008 and lives and works in the Kansas City area. We have many opportunities to give back to the University and community, as Northwest has given so much to our family!

It's because of the volunteer support of countless alumni and friends -- spirited people like Paul and Robin Lamb Wilmes -- that Northwest continues to thrive.
