Vanhoose named senior enrollment services counselor for regional campuses/transfer advisor

Jan. 18, 2013 — Morehead State University’s Transition Center and Office of Enrollment Services has announced Joel Vanhoose has been hired as a senior enrollment services counselor for regional campuses/transfer advisor.

Vanhoose will be based at the University Center of the Mountains, on the campus of Hazard Community and Technical College.

“I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to work with and help people all across East and Southeastern Kentucky gain access to higher education and a better future. I've always said that an education is a small key that opens a big door, and I'm so grateful for the chance to help more people in my homeland improve their own lives,” said Vanhoose, an MSU graduate.

“Being in a position where I get to travel throughout the region and bring opportunities into people's lives is amazing. I'm so grateful to be here and doing this with my life. Morehead State provided the education and life experiences that have led me here, and getting to provide the same to others is so fulfilling for me.”

He will travel among the campuses of Big Sandy, Hazard and Southeast Kentucky community and technical colleges to assist current and prospective transfer students with admissions, advising and other student services.

Prior to coming to MSU, Vanhoose worked for Big Sandy CTC.

He will meet with students, faculty and staff to inform them of the exciting opportunities available to transfer students at MSU such as regional campuses, online degree completer programs and transfer scholarships.

“We are incredibly pleased to have Joel on the Transition Center Team. His previous experience at KCTCS in student services makes him a very valuable asset both to Morehead State, and to the students that he will work with,” said Jen Timmermann, transfer senior enrollment services counselor.

Students interested in learning more about transferring are encouraged to contact Vanhoose at 606-487-3182 or Transfer information also is available at
