Hi! I am Joy Hamm, and I am excited to serve as the Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management here at Young Harris College! As a graduate of a small, liberal arts college, I personally know the value of receiving an education from a place like YHC. I have worked in higher education for over 20 years, and I love using my experiences to help students and their families through the admissions and financial aid processes. I can’t wait to meet you!
My name is Kelley Bryson, and my heart bleeds Mountain Lion Purple! I graduated from Young Harris College with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in 2018. I’m a local girl from the next town over, and I commuted to YHC during my time in the Enchanted Valley. I worked in the Admissions Office as a Student Representative, and when I graduated, I joined the team as a staff member. I love serving our students from Union County, Georgia, and students who transfer to YHC, enroll in Early College or enroll in our graduate program.
My name is Myra O’Connor, and I am the Assistant Director of Admissions Operations here at YHC. I am happy to sign you up for a campus visit where you can tour our beautiful campus, sit in on a class that you are interested in, meet a professor from your intended major, and get a glimpse of everything you are looking for in your college experience!
My name is Katie Phenix, and I am from Loganville, Georgia. I graduated from YHC in May 2021 with a B.A. in Communication Studies and a minor in Women’s Studies. I took my first tour of YHC in 8th grade and knew this was where I was supposed to be! I worked in the Office of Admissions as a Student Representative giving tours of the Enchanted Valley, and now I have the opportunity to serve incoming freshmen from not only South Georgia, but from all across the U.S.! I was also a part of the YHC Competitive Cheerleading team, Greek Life, and Residence Life. On the weekends, you can usually find me adventuring with my pup, Tallulah! Go Mountain Lions!
