Administrative Assistant II, FGB Department
On any given evening or weekend, you might just spot Kimberly Callahan lending a hand around town! She is living out the public affairs mission through a multitude of interests and projects ranging from local fundraisers, writing and leading Bible studies, to volunteering her social media talents to help others generate cause awareness.
Moving to Springfield from Sacramento, it didn’t take long for Kimberly to get involved in community projects and start making an impact both locally and globally. She participates annually for the Friends Against Hunger’s Meals-a-Million, Walk MS and Bass Pro’s Marathon Weekend. A current goal is to participate in at least one 5K a month. Most recently in May, Kimberly worked the AIDS Project of the Ozark’s Red Ribbon Ride where she cheered on riders and put together hygiene and cleaning kits for their clients in need. She also chairs several committees for the Springfield Metro Chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP).
Kimberly says, “The Friends of the Library book sale was the first event I got involved with in Springfield and that, along with projects through North Point Church and Convoy of Hope are my favorites, although I of course enjoy all the organizations I’m involved with!” For providing a wonderful example of what living Missouri State’s public affairs mission is all about, we are proud to recognize Kimberly Callahan as the June Public Affairs Staff Spotlight!
