Job Title: High School Partnerships Director

Job Duties: I collaborate with the counseling office at Eagle Grove, East Sac County, Greene County, Humboldt, Manson Northwest Webster, Paton-Churdan, South Central Calhoun, and Southeast Valley to assist students with college and career exploration-related opportunities. While out at the high schools, I advise students with post-secondary courses that align with their future goals and programs at Iowa Central Community College and other colleges and universities. I assist students with completion of college applications, scholarships, FAFSA, and financial aid. I can help with the admissions process at Iowa Central, and even work with students who would rather transfer to a different 2 or 4-year institution.

Favorite thing about Iowa Central: I am an Iowa Central graduate myself and have worked at Iowa Central for 20 years, I love seeing how campus has evolved into a beautiful “mini university” and we have expanded our academic offerings to meet the needs of the community. Through all the changes one thing has stayed the same and that is our “student’s first philosophy” Iowa Central’s staff and faculty truly care about student success; we strive to ensure students have a great experience in and out of the classroom and I love being a small part of helping students obtain their goal.
