Darby Rumler

Darby Rumler, was a recent second generation Leatherneck and pursued her dual Bachelor's degrees in Marketing and Graphic Communication. She was an active member of the WIU Marketing Club, a student leader for the Campus Students for Christ ministry, and a Media Team member for the Crossing church. Darby is currently employed at IMEG Group, a national construction engineering and design consulting company.

"Western has given me the knowledge, hands-on skills, experiences, and resources to succeed after college. Being a leader of numerous group projects and the President of Marketing Club has taught me what it means to be a leader -and yet still be coachable, how to organize unique events, fundraisers, and execute multi-media advertising campaigns, and how to think with a more future-forward focus."
