When Brandi (Fornshell) Montogmery joined Wilmington College’s admission staff in 2014, she was no stranger to WC, as she is an alumnus from the Class of 2013. Her recent appointment as the College’s primary recruiter of agriculture students was, in turn, especially appropriate as she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in agirculture.
She returned to WC in 2014 after working two years in the agriculture industry.
Adam Lohrey, director of admission, said her job experience, coupled with that gained as a former agriculture student and Student Ambassador with the Admission Office, have set up Brandi for success in her new role.
“She will continue building relationships with high schools and other agriculture programs, in addition to working closely with our faculty in student recruitment and cultivating relationships within the agriculture industry,” he said.
Lohrey said Montgomery will coordinate Wilmington College’s presence at the Ohio, Indiana and National FFA conventions, while also interfacing with FFA and agriculture instructors throughout Ohio and beyond.
In addition, she will continue a close affiliation with the Ohio Farm Bureau as a young professional in agriculture as a delegate to the annual meeting and a member involved with local programming. At WC, she will supervise agriculture majors in the student ambassador program, lead farm tours for prospective students and their families, and take a leadership role in group visits to campus and visit program days.
