Kevin Mul­hol­land named new ad­mis­sions direc­tor

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

Kevin J. Mul­hol­land of Me­dia has been named the new Ad­mis­sions Direc­tor at Devon Prepara­tory School. Mul­hol­land, a Class of 2002 alum­nus, suc­ceeds Pa­trick Kane of Spring­field, who now serves as the school’s Direc­tor of Ex­ter­nal Op­er­a­tions and is re­spon­si­ble for large gift do­na­tions. In his new post Mul­hol­land will be re­spon­si­ble for de­vel­op­ing re­cruit­ment strate­gies and ini­tia­tives, at­tract­ing qual­i­fied and di­verse stu­dents, and build­ing and main­tain­ing re­la­tion­ships with stu­dents, par­ents and area schools.

Mul­hol­land comes to Devon Prep af­ter sev­eral years as a Par­tic­i­pant Ser­vices Ad­min­is­tra­tor for The Van­guard Group in Malvern where he worked closely with clients, build­ing long-term re­la­tion­ships. He also trained and men­tored peers and new em­ploy­ees. Prior to Van­guard he served as the Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Direc­tor of the Col­lege Plan­ning Cen­ter, and an As­so­ci­ate Pro­ducer for Com­cast Sport­sNet. Mul­hol­land also served as the As­sis­tant Direc­tor of Devon Prep’s Ad­mis­sions Of­fice in 2007.

Mul­hol­land said he is ex­cited to re­turn to his alma mater and is ea­ger to take on this new chal­lenge. “Devon has al­ways been a place I’ve felt strongly about, and I feel I’ve been af­forded an op­por­tu­nity to come back and con­trib­ute in a mean­ing­ful and pos­i­tive way,” he said. “As ad­mis­sions direc­tor my goal is to grow the school, and to make sure as many stu­dents as pos­si­ble are able to come to Devon and have as great and as last­ing an ex­pe­ri­ence as I had.”

Hav­ing been a stu­dent in the mid­dle school and up­per school, an alum­nus and an em­ployee Mul­hol­land be­lieves his years of in­volve­ment with Devon Prep will be help­ful in his new po­si­tion. He has been con­nected to the school for nearly 20 years and feels that should help him re­lay what the school is all about to prospec­tive par­ents and stu­dents.

“Devon’s strength is in its size, in its cul­ti­va­tion of a fam­ily at­mos­phere, and in its abil­ity to af­ford the stu­dents such a wide range of cour­ses and ac­tiv­i­ties,” he ex­plained. “Stu­dents at Devon Prep are able to play sports, work on the mu­si­cal, play in the band, sup­port CAP, and con­trib­ute to Mock Trial, all while tak­ing mul­ti­ple AP cour­ses - and that’s all in one year, not over the course of their scholas­tic ca­reer.
