Welcome from our Admissions Staff

Tim Rees, Dean of Enrollment

Greetings! I have the pleasure of serving as Dean of Enrollment at Erskine, which means I provide direction and guidance for the admissions and financial aid offices. As a first-in-family college graduate, I can empathize with those who are trying to navigate the hurdles of going to college because I have experienced them myself. We hope to see you on our campus soon to find out more about how we can assist you with your college choice and why Erskine might be a good fit for you.

Kasey McNair, Director Of Admissions

Hey, y’all! I am the Director of Admissions for Erskine College after serving two years as an Admissions Counselor. I grew up in Abbeville, South Carolina, about 12 miles away from Due West. I graduated from Erskine College in 2017 with a degree in Mathematics and Business Administration. During my four years as a student, I worked in the Admissions Office as an Ambassador and fell in love with working with students and helping them make their college decision. I was also involved in the Choraleers and Bella Voce music ensembles, as well as Judicial Council, VASE, and EEB while at Erskine. My favorite things to do are read, serve my church and community, and travel everywhere I can! I also love all things pink and the beach is my favorite place to go! I can’t wait to chat with you about Erskine and help you find your college home.

Kendra La Greca, Coordinator of Events and Operations

Hello! I’m the Coordinator of Admissions Events and Operations here at Erskine. Even though I graduated from Lander University, I’ve lived right outside of Due West for my entire life and I’m so thankful to work in a place that feels like home to me. When I’m not at work, I love to spend time with husband, my new baby boy, and my dog, Duchess. Life has gotten a lot busier lately, but in my free time, I still enjoy reading, traveling, and playing board games. I’m excited to talk to you and help you plan your next visit to Erskine.

Tiona Thompson, Admission’s Counselor

Hey everyone! I am serving as an Admissions Counselor here at Erskine College. I grew up in Chester, SC and graduated from Erskine in 2016 with a degree in Biology. After my time at Erskine, I served as a Furman College Advising Corp Adviser stationed at Chester Senior High School in Chester, SC. Working with students is both my passion and purpose. Working with students on both a high school and college level, I understand that in order to want change you have to be part of the change. In my spare time I love to read, travel, and color. I also love being outside and around animals. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. I can’t wait to chat and learn more about you!

William Cooper, Admission’s Counselor

My name is William Cooper. I attended Erskine from 2009 until 2013, during which time I majored in History and was on the leadership team for Baptist Collegiate Ministries. After graduating, I spent two years teaching English in South Korea and then worked my way into college admissions. I very much see my position here as a ministry to help students determine if Erskine is a place where they can not only grow intellectually but also enrich their relationship with Christ. Outside of work, my passions include reading, jogging, and going on mission trips to Africa.

Kate Deak, Admission’s Counselor
