Magdalen College is delighted to announce the new Director of Admissions, Mrs. Michele McKenna. Mrs. McKenna is an experienced educational leader and is well-equipped to serve the college as ambassador and advocate. Having worked for over 25 years in admissions and school administration, she is poised to fully realize strategic goals that reflect and embrace our mission. The breadth of her leadership roles in Catholic education affords her a unique understanding of the entire admissions process.
Dr. Ryan Messmore, President of Magdalen College, is enthusiastic about the hiring of Mrs. McKenna. “I am encouraged to have Michele serving in this important position. She brings a unique balance to the role: she is the mother of a Magdalen graduate, she has valuable wisdom and experience in the field of admissions, and yet she also brings a lot of contagious passion and new ideas that will energize our entire admissions process.”
Mrs. McKenna is excited to partner with college applicants and their families. “I have seen firsthand the transformative experience Magdalen affords its students. I fully embrace the rich Catholic tradition and a dedication to the joyful pursuit of truth, freedom, and wisdom. Now more than ever we need Catholic institutions committed to the education of the whole person and the pursuit of excellence in mind, heart, and spirit. I know Magdalen lives these truths as it journeys with its students ‘out into the deep.’”
Please join us in praying for Mrs. McKenna as she guides college applicants on their admissions journey.
