If the GC Admissions staff lip-synching “All I Want for Christmas is You” doesn’t put you in the holiday mood, apply for Grinch-hood immediately. Just don’t spoil the joy of counselor Jeremiah Tudor, who had the brainstorm; and intern/tour guide Molly Shoulta, who shot the video.
In fact, Assistant Admissions Director Katie Knight Hoelscher ’04, encourages all alums – especially those with children who are beginning to think about college – to spread the cheer by forwarding the above link. (Hot cider tip: High school seniors who have visited campus and applied by Friday, December 16, qualify for the $500 Travel Grant.)
The holidays are a great time for high school seniors to apply for scholarships; FYI – February 1 is Georgetown’s scholarship application deadline for those hoping to enter as freshmen Fall 2012.
The fun-lovin’ counselors and student tour guides will gladly show you around campus any time. But, if you and your high school junior want the real royal treatment, sign up for the next Georgetown College Visit-in-Person (VIP) Day – Friday, April 13, 2012. Call 1-800-788-9985.
Back to that Christmas video choreographer: Jeremiah Tudor, whose recruiting territory includes the Kentucky counties of Jefferson, Oldham, Bullitt as well as Indiana, Michigan and New England, had roles in “My Fair Lady,” “Fiddler On The Roof,” and “Carousel” while at Scott County High in GC’s backyard. Then, at Cumberland College, where he was Music major/Theatre minor, he was involved in many musicals.
The aforementioned, multi-talented Molly, who’s serving a second term as SGA President, is a junior Communication & Media Studies and Political Science and Religion double major, Musical Theatre minor, from Louisville. You could say student recruitment and film-making runs in the family.
Josh Shoulta ’06, one her twin brothers, created his own Motion Picture Arts major here. He then spent almost the next five years as a GC Admissions counselor and filmed a number of fun videos to promote the College and student life at his alma mater. Now the public relations manager for the Louisville non-profit Family & Children’s Place, Josh said, “Molly really blew me out of the water with the Christmas video!”
