CMS User Training and Support Specialist

On Staff since 1999


My primary responsibility is to train people across the campus in the use of TerminalFour, which is our web content management system. It is the software that allows a person to access the pages for their part of the Wheaton website and make edits and changes. I conduct this training one-on-one or in group sessions. I also enjoy working with people all across campus to think about how to tell the story of what they are doing in their discipline or program well and strategize how best to do that with the tools we have at our disposal. Wheaton is an amazing place and I enjoy helping to tell that story well.

Les did his undergraduate study in art at Asbury University, and he has a master’s degree in Instructional Systems Technology from Indiana University - Bloomington. His background is in graphic design and photography and he has been applying those skills to the field of education for most of his career. He's been working at Wheaton College since the fall of 1999 and his first job here was doing the layout, design, and photography for Wheaton magazine. In 2001 he was asked to be the first person at Wheaton to focus exclusively on web communications. His daughter, Karis, is a 2017 graduate (biology major) of the College. He attends Community Christian Church and is involved in teaching, small groups, and discipleship. In his spare time he creates intricate paper snowflakes.
