Dr. Tim Rees – Dean of Enrollment
Hello, everyone! I am the Dean of Enrollment Management here at Erskine, which means I have the pleasure of working with the admissions and financial aid offices. I have worked in higher education for almost 15 years in exclusively Christian institutions. Prior to that I worked in the insurance industry and served in the Marines with my last duty station being in Greenville, SC. What I like most about working at a school like Erskine is the close-knit community and ability to assist students one-on-one. At bigger colleges that is not always possible. Everyone I have met in my time here really enjoys what they do and where they get to do it. I think it can be best described as a family. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our youngest son as well as being active in church activities.
Kasey McNair – Director Of Admissions
Hey, y’all! I am the Director of Admissions for Erskine College after serving two years as an Admissions Counselor. I grew up in Abbeville, South Carolina, about 12 miles away from Due West. I graduated from Erskine College in 2017 with a degree in Mathematics and Business Administration. During my four years as a student, I worked in the Admissions Office as an Ambassador and fell in love with working with students and helping them make their college decision. I was also involved in the Choraleers and Bella Voce music ensembles, as well as Judicial Council, VASE, and EEB while at Erskine. My favorite things to do are read, serve my church and community, and travel everywhere I can! I also love all things pink, and the beach is my favorite place to go! I can’t wait to chat with you about Erskine and help you find your college home.
Kendra LaGreca – Coordinator of Admissions Events and Operations
Hello! I’m the Coordinator of Admissions Events and Operations here at Erskine. Even though I graduated from Lander University, I’ve lived right outside of Due West for my entire life, and I’m so thankful to work in a place that feels like home to me. When I’m not at work, I love to spend time with my husband, my new baby boy, and my dog, Duchess. Life has gotten a lot busier lately, but in my free time, I still enjoy reading, traveling, and playing board games. I’m excited to talk to you and help you plan your next visit to Erskine.

Originally from Charlotte, I completed both my B.A. and M.A. at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. As an undergrad, I majored in History, and as a graduate student, I was part of an interdisciplinary program where I studied philosophy and religion.

Tiona Thompson – Admissions Counselor
Hey, everyone! I am serving as an Admissions Counselor here at Erskine College. I grew up in Chester, SC, and graduated from Erskine in 2016 with a degree in Biology. After my time at Erskine, I served as a Furman College Advising Corp Adviser stationed at Chester Senior High School in Chester, SC. Working with students is both my passion and purpose. Working with students on both high school and college levels, I understand that in order to want change you have to be part of the change. In my spare time I love to read, travel, and color. I also love being outside and around animals. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I can’t wait to chat and learn more about you!
Amanda Pruitt – Admissions Counselor
Hey y’all! My name is Amanda Pruitt, and I’m an Admissions Counselor here at Erskine. I graduated from Erskine in 2014 with a B.A. in History, and my four years here were absolutely amazing! I remember the impact my Admissions Counselor had on me in helping me make my college decision, and I always wanted to come back and serve Erskine in some way. I’m so excited that I get the opportunity to do that now! In my spare time, I love hanging out with my husband and family, going to the movies, journaling, and visiting local coffee shops. I can’t wait to talk and get to know you and help you learn about all that Erskine has to offer you!
William Cooper – Admissions Counselor
My name is William Cooper. I attended Erskine from 2009 until 2013, during which time I majored in History and was on the leadership team for Baptist Collegiate Ministries. After graduating, I spent two years teaching English in South Korea and then worked my way into college admissions. I very much see my position here as a ministry to help students determine if Erskine is a place where they can not only grow intellectually, but also enrich their relationship with Christ. Outside of work, my passions include reading, jogging, and going on mission trips to Africa.
Bryce Pruitt – Data Coordinator
Good day to you, sirs and madams! My name is Bryce Pruitt, and my adventure at Erskine took place from 2009 to 2013. During this time, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics; I then furthered my education during the next 5-6 years by obtaining two Master’s degrees, both in Mathematics, from College of Charleston and Clemson University. While my job description usually means I will be interacting more with numbers than students, I do help my fellow Admissions coworkers reach as many students as possible. A few things I enjoy are video games, comic book movies, reading, and making people laugh. Although I may not interact with students as much as the rest of the Admissions staff, my door is always open if you want to talk!
