Carol Beth Stansell Nobles
Born May 4, 1955, she was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Calvin F. Stansell, Jr. of Athens.
In 2014, Ms. Nobles retired as Regional Sales Director over the Southeastern U.S. for SCRIP-SAFE International, a document security company based in Loveland, Ohio. Prior to working at SCRIP-SAFE, she retired in 2009 from the Medical College of Georgia (now Georgia Regents University), where she had served as director of student recruitment and admissions since 2000. She created MCG’s undergraduate and graduate online application for admission, guided the successful implementation of data push technology that eliminated manual re-keying of admissions application data, and designed MCG’s online admissions status check that enabled applicants to see their admissions application status online. She served as team lead for the successful implementation of the recruiting and admissions modules of a new student information system, and also was the functional team lead for the implementation of document imaging in the admissions office.
Prior to coming to MCG, Ms. Nobles was the director of recruitment, admissions, and orientation at the University of Texas at Arlington. She served in earlier positions as director of admissions at Gainesville State College (1991-1996) and as assistant director (1979-1987) and associate director (1996-1999) of admissions at the University of Georgia.
An exceptional leader in state, regional, and national professional associations for college admissions and records officers, she was a past president of both the Georgia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (GACRAO) and the Southern Association (SACRAO), chairing numerous committees and giving dozens of professional presentations for both associations over a 32-year career. She received GACRAO’s highest award, the Distinguished Service Award, in 2005, and in 2008 also received SACRAO’s rarely given Distinguished Service Award. After her retirement in 2009, she received honorary membership in both associations. She also served on or chaired several committees for the American Association (AACRAO).
She received her bachelor of arts in journalism with a major in public relations from the University of Georgia in 1977, and her master of education with a major in student personnel in higher education in 1979. She was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and Kappa Tau Alpha honor societies. She also completed several years of coursework toward a doctor of philosophy in sociology and a doctor of education in higher education at the University of Georgia.
