As a graduate of a small, liberal arts college, I personally know the value of receiving an education from a place like YHC.

Admissions Counselor

Area: South Georgia and Out-of-State Students

My name is Will Tison, and I am from Hayesville, North Carolina. I graduated from YHC in May of 2023 with a B.S. in History. As a lifelong resident of Western North Carolina and North Georgia, I spent a significant amount of time near YHC when I was growing up, and when I took my first official tour of YHC, I knew this was where I wanted to attend college. When I was a student, I worked on campus as a Peer Mentor for three semesters, and I served as an Orientation Leader in the Spring of 2022. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to serve incoming freshmen from South Georgia and across the United States and I look forward to meeting you soon! Go Mountain Lions!
