In Memory of Braxton Rethwisch


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Braxton Rethwisch, For more than 50 years, Braxton served as an Admission Counselor at Central Methodist College, his alma mater, lovingly ushering in generations of prospective students. Braxton served MOACAC in various capacities over the years, most notably as our long-time legislative chair and champion who advocated for students and our profession in both Jefferson City and Washington, D.C.

Braxton leaves behind his wife, Judy, his children, Carter and Christine (Patrick) Nigh, and several grandchildren.

Good friends and colleagues, Diane Drilling, Drury University, and Mary Giunta, Affton High School, have shared their thoughts about Braxton's impact on their lives here.
