YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. — On Nov. 1, 2020, Young Harris College will welcome Andra Brantley to serve as the director of admissions. In this role, Brantley will work with the admissions team to implement new strategies to grow and further develop enrollment.

“Achieving success is never done by one person,” said Brantley. “It's done by a team committed to the goal.”

Andra Brantley began his career in higher education at West Georgia Technical College where he served as the high school coordinator. From there, he transitioned to Georgia State University to become the assistant director of recruitment and admissions and gained a Registered Enrollment Professional Certification through the Georgia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. Brantley comes to YHC from Clark Atlanta University, where he served as senior assistant director of transfer student services. His collective experience gained over the last 11 years has helped lead him to this opportunity at Young Harris College.

“Mr. Brantley is an accomplished and adept enrollment management professional with many years of experience recruiting Georgia high school students to in-state colleges and universities,” said Provost Dr. Jason A. Pierce. “The members of the search committee were particularly impressed by his evident leadership skills, his experience as a trainer of counselors and as a talent-developer, and his extensive familiarity with the Atlanta market. I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow Young Harris’s enrollment and expand awareness of the College among prospective students, particularly in North Georgia and the metro areas.”
