Our Admission Team

Each applicant to Baylor is assigned an admission counselor who will guide you through the process, and you should feel free to contact your counselor any time you have a question.

Jim Kennedy

As Director of Admission, Jim sees his charge as creating an achievable vision for the admission department and then, as he says, "grabbing an oar!"

Virginia Anne Manson

Virginia Anne, or VA, is a very busy person as she oversees the development of the boarding admission at Baylor. If you're interested in the boarding school, chances are you'll meet VA.

Ryan Armstrong

If you apply for day admission, it just might be Ryan that gives you a tour of the campus. He also serves as an admission counselor for boarding applicants from the the northeast and New England and is the admission liaison to the Baylor athletic department.

Bill Murdock

As Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships, Bill enjoys showing families the opportunities available at Baylor and helping them make the right match between student and school. His goal is to get to know applicants “as people, not files.”

Michael Clark

When you submit your application to Baylor, you land in good hands with Michael. He manages our database systems and the data flow between them, making sure your information gets to the right folks at the right time.

Jenny Silberman

Applicants assigned to Jenny have learned that she does her best to make sure you feel comfortable at Baylor. She'll show you all that Baylor has to offer and help you decide if Baylor is a good fit for you. You'll also get to know Jenny at the admission testing site.

Eric Westmoreland

Football fans, especially UT football fans, will be happy if Eric helps them with their application to Baylor. He is a member of the 1998 National Championship Vol team!

Lori Kinney

Lori may be the first person you talk to in the Baylor admission office. She does a little (or a lot) of everything - answers the phone, meets and talks with families, supports the application and enrollment processes, and assists with events. If you need help, call Lori!

Jordan Clark

You may speak to Jordan when you visit Baylor, or he may visit you in your home town. One of his responsibilities is to travel the country, finding future Red Raiders.

Kelly O'Mara

Interested in applying for our boarding school, and live in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, or points west? You'll be meeting Kelly.

Linda Cooke

Linda is Baylor's Director of Student Diversity and Development and works closely with students and parents, building relationships and keeping lines of communication open. Those skills are valuable to Baylor, and to you, in her role as associate director of boarding and admission.

Leland Strang

If you're applying to be a Baylor day student, you may be meeting Leland. She works primarily with families of perspective day students from the Chattanooga area.

Carissa Sebes Margio

If you're interested in Baylor's boarding school, chances are you'll meet Carissa. She coordinates and plans the open house events, coordinates visits and tours for international applicants, communicates with all boarding applicants, and assists the admission counselors.
