Regions: Transfer students, JRLC, International students, Non-degree seeking students

Celia Duncan joined the admissions team in December 2014 and works with transfer, international and non-degree-seeking students.

Duncan graduated from Evangel in 2012 with a degree in International Multicultural Studies. As a student she worked part-time with Dusty Feet, a nonprofit that combats human trafficking. Since graduation, she has also been involved with an inner-city church plant in Denver and worked in student life at Victory Trade School in Springfield.

“I feel like my purpose is to help other people find their purpose,” Duncan says. “My passion is for people to know their value and to be equipped and empowered to do what they feel like they’re supposed to be doing.”

In their free time, Duncan and her husband, Aaron, enjoy being outdoors. A self-proclaimed people-person, Duncan also enjoys good conversation. She says her favorite part of Evangel is the people.

“Everyone I have met here has impacted my life in one way or another, all for the better,” she says. “The relationships that started here I know will be the ones I cling to throughout my life and into eternity.”

Regions: Director for Undergraduate Admissions

Originally from Laredo, Texas, Ana Solano transferred to Evangel in January 2010 and graduated in May of 2012 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. She is the Associate Director for Undergraduate Admissions at Evangel.

Her best memory as a student was serving as a resident assistant for Burgess First South. “Spending time with the girls on my floor was by far my favorite experience,” she says. “I built lifelong friendships with awesome gals.”

Ana says the qualities that drew her to Evangel were the kindness and friendliness of the people she met on campus when she visited for a Transfer Student Day as well as the spirit of excellence that everyone had. “I absolutely fell in love with Evangel.”

She loves to guide the admissions team as they help new students through the admissions process. “Evangel was a phenomenal experience for me. It changed my life. My admissions counselor played a vital role in that. I am so excited to be able to walk with students through this huge life-changing experience and be a small part of such a defining time in life.”
