My name is Emily Carella, and I’d like to be the first to welcome you to Young Harris College. One of my greatest joys is watching students grow and helping them attain their career goals. As you explore your educational options, I look forward to assisting you along your journey. I encourage you to tour our campus because once you visit, you will know why YHC is the college for you!
My name is Zach Chamberlin from Athens, Georgia, and I graduated from YHC with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2015. I chose YHC because of the quality of the education, the outstanding success rates of the graduates, and the transformative spirit of a liberal arts experience. In my free time, I enjoy reading, international travel and spending time with my English bulldog, Bo.
My name is Myra O’Connor, and I am the Campus Visit Coordinator 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!
As soon as I stepped foot onto YHC’s campus, I knew I had found my home away from home. What set YHC apart was the intentionality of everyone I met, especially the professors, who genuinely cared about my success and goals. During my time at YHC, I was a student-athlete on our Competitive Cheerleading team, and I was always ready to support our many NCAA Division II teams. My advice to you is to find your own home away from home, and I hope that it's at YHC!
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.
I came to the Enchanted Valley from Commerce, Georgia, and graduated from YHC in May of 2019 with Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I love YHC with all my heart, and I love the opportunity to help students learn about the College. As a student, I worked as a Student Representative for Admissions, a Math tutor for the Success Center and as a Peer Mentor for the First Year Foundations class. Additionally, I was a member of SPAT Club, Phi Alpha Phi, Phi Phi Phi, Student Government Association and the YHC Honors Program.
