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.
Julio Delgado – Admissions Counselor
Hey, guys! My name is Julio Delgado, and I am an Admissions Counselor here at Erskine. I attended Lander University and graduated in 2016 with a degree in Political Science. I spent most of my spare time helping my local church and the Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Lander. In March 2019, I married my beautiful wife. We have two daughters: Eliana and Selah. I am excited to see Erskine students grow not only in intellectual understanding, but also as whole beings. Feel free to drop by my office any time!
Evan Hughes – Admissions Counselor
Hey, y’all! My name is Evan Hughes, and I am an Admissions Counselor here at Erskine, after serving as a student ambassador for two years. I grew up right down the road in Abbeville, South Carolina, but Due West became my home away from home when I became a student at Erskine College. In 2021, I graduated from Erskine with a B.S. in Business Administration. As a student, I was involved in many organizations, including Fellow of Christian Athletes (FCA), Erskine chapel worship team, Choraleers, Chamber Singers, and Onward and Upward (OAU). I also served as a Resident Assistant and helped to found Erskine’s College Bass Fishing Team. I am excited to help future Erskine students find their niche on campus too! I enjoy hunting, fishing, singing, playing the guitar, and spending quality time with family and friends. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the years to come!
David Pendergrass – Accelerated Ministry Program Counselor
What’s going on, everyone? My name is David Pendergrass, and I am your friendly neighborhood Accelerated Ministry Program Counselor here at Erskine College! Born and raised in the Metro-Atlanta area, I came to Due West as a student in 2008. I was involved with everything from SGA to Student Life to Choraleers to Literary Societies, also serving as class president my senior year. Like many Erskine students, I met my wife here, and we now have two kids and a slew of pets. After I graduated in 2012 with a B.A. in Biblical Studies, God took me on a journey far outside what I expected when I completed my degree. Before coming back to Erskine College to work, I started a small business, and I credit this institution with helping me to be prepared for such a venture. When not assisting students as they prepare for a life after high school, I enjoy Marvel comics (Spider-Man to be specific) and a good theology book. I look forward to getting to know you better as you look at how Erskine could be your college home! Reach out, and let’s start a conversation.
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.
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!
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.
