March 2, 2011 — Kelley Jones Ashcraft has been appointed vice president for enrollment services and will direct Sherman College of Chiropractic’s efforts to build student interest in chiropractic as a career and increase enrollment in the doctor of chiropractic program at Sherman.
Before joining Sherman in February 2011, Jones Ashcraft was executive assistant to the president at Spartanburg Community College where she managed the marketing and public relations department and co-chaired a committee to establish Career Quest, an event that brings more than 1,000 high school and middle school students and their parents together with representatives from business, industry education and the military to explore career options.
Having observed Jones Ashcraft’s work ethic through mutual work with Spartanburg’s College Town Consortium events and meetings, President Jon Schwartzbauer says he has full confidence that she will make a positive impact on the college’s enrollment growth efforts.
“The Board of Trustees and college administration have a clear vision for the future of Sherman College, and Kelley supports this vision,” he said. “We welcome her as a member of our administrative team and look forward to her contributions as vice president for enrollment services.”
Jones Ashcraft has also served as interim executive director of the Spartanburg Community College Foundation, an organization that provides assistance through scholarships, curriculum resources, equipment, facilities and grants for SCC students, faculty, staff and the community.
Prior to her work in higher education, Jones Ashcraft worked as a marketing analyst and planner at Milliken & Company. She holds an MBA from the University of South Carolina, a bachelor’s degree in mathematical sciences from Clemson University and has completed coursework toward a doctorate in higher education administration.
“I am thrilled to join the team at Sherman College, Jones Ashcraft commented. “I look forward to working with the college community and continuing our journey toward greater growth and student success.”
Jones Ashcraft takes over the department as Lisa Hildebrand, who served the college for nearly 15 years, has resigned to return to her hometown in Rhode Island with her husband and two children.
