Williams Baptist College has announced the promotion of Brett Cooper to the position of vice president for college relations. Cooper, who currently serves as WBC's director of public relations, will assume his new role on July 1.

"Brett's work in public relations has helped Williams to reach a much higher level of public awareness and to strengthen important relationships, especially in our community," WBC President Jerol Swaim said. "His new position will enable us to utilize his abilities across a broader range of college relationships." Cooper will continue to lead WBC's public relations efforts, as well as working with other offices at the college to help coordinate communications and enhance relationships with important constituencies, according to Swaim.

"Williams is like other organizations in that we depend on relationships with many groups of people, both inside and outside the college. Brett is very adept at communicating the message of the college and strengthening ties with these groups," Swaim said.

Cooper, who has worked at WBC since 1993, recently completed his Ph.D. in communication at the University of Memphis. He also holds a master's degree in communication from Southwestern Baptist Seminary and a bachelor's in journalism from the University of Arkansas.

He is a Mountain Home native and a 1983 graduate of Mountain Home High School. He is the son of Owen "Bud" Cooper of Mountain Home and the late Minerva Cooper. His brother is Mark Cooper, a Mountain Home attorney.
