You might have heard an admissions representative say, “My territory is…” or “I am the territory manager for…”, but what does that mean? At Stevenson each member of the freshman staff is assigned a group of students to work with from the college search process through the enrollment process. Staff are assigned to work with students based on high school, county, or state and this is referred to as their territory. That means they will be visiting high schools and attending college fairs in their designated territory as well as reviewing those students’ applications and signing their decision letters. Below you will find a list of our current staff as well as their assigned territories and a fun fact about them.
