He is active at New Covenant Family Church, serving as a deacon and director of the college-age ministry.
“We are excited about Troy’s addition to the admissions counseling staff. He will manage a traditional admissions territory and will also work with multicultural student recruitment which is an exciting new effort for Milligan,” said David Mee, vice president for enrollment management at Milligan. “We included this important issue in our strategic planning, and Troy’s appointment moves us another step closer to meeting key goals in the area of student diversity.”
Booth is a 1994 graduate of the University of Nevada at Reno, where she received her bachelor of science degree.
