Ancilla College is proud to welcome two long-time local education professionals as part of their new marketing and admissions efforts.

Kelly Manning and Ericka Taylor-Joseph, both Starke County residents, are now part of Ancilla’s Admission Department as admissions counselors. Both have extensive connections to regional schools and community organizations.

Taylor-Joseph boasts a background in sales, counseling and management, having earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Purdue University. After five years as a career adviser in Workforce Development, she is greatly welcomed at the college. The Interim Director of Ancilla’s Office of Admissions, Eric Wignall, says her phenomenal skills and her excellence at working with a diverse population, in addition to her knowledge of in-demand career fields, makes her a great asset to the Ancilla team.

Kelly Manning also joined Ancilla College in the Admissions office. Manning, a longtime Starke County resident, was a student athlete at Hanover College before she graduated with a degree in Communications. She has served as regional coordinator for Indiana’s Twenty-first Century Scholars Program in Starke, Pulaski, Fulton, and Jasper County Scholars for the past 12 years. She is also active in various organizations, including the Starke County Youth Club.

Ancilla College offers two-year, associate’s degrees that allow graduates to enter the workforce or to transfer to senior institutions to obtain a bachelor’s degree.
