Booker comes to Ancilla after spending the past three years as a recruiting manager at a transportation regional center in Joliet, IL.
A graduate of Saginaw Valley State University, Booker brings a wealth of experience in admissions to Ancilla College.
Booker has had two previous stints as a Director of Admissions at Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS, and Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, TN.
He also served in admissions-related roles at University of Detroit Mercy in Detroit, MI, and Northwood University in Midland, MI.
“We are pleased to have Tony Booker join the Ancilla College Admissions Office staff,” said Ancilla College President Dr. Ron May. “He has successful experience in assisting other private colleges increase enrollments. His experience and his personal background make him a good fit for Ancilla College.”
Booker described Ancilla College as a “perfect fit” for him.
“This school appealed to me on every front,” said Booker. “Ancilla is a small, faith-based school and it’s located in the Midwest. The decision to apply here was very easy.”
Booker’s ultimate goal for the position is increasing enrollment, a goal which he describes as being “two-fold”.
“We want to attract more of the best and brightest from our region, while continuing to be a college that recruits and serves individuals from underserved populations,” said Booker. “To do that, we’ll be doing a lot more outreach into the community.”
Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
