Meet the Admissions Team

Kendra Everest

Recruitment and Admissions Specialist

"What I love most about Hawkeye are the opportunities Hawkeye has to offer. There are new things happening all the time and the opportunities for students to get involved in the campus community are numerous."

@ Hawkeye

As a Recruitment and Admissions Specialist at Hawkeye I manage the front office in Admissions. My duties include assessing student files, accepting students to the college, and processing letters. I also have the privilege of going off campus and visiting high schools.

I have been at Hawkeye since May 2012.

My most memorable moment at Hawkeye is the  day I graduated! It was awesome to look back at my experience and think about all the fun I had and all the people I met. The best part is several of those people are still a part of my life today!
