Hello Future Husky!
My name is Leslie Shelton, and it is my pleasure to serve as your admissions counselor!
I am originally from the Houston area, and recently returned after living in various other locations for the past 10+ years. While I am new to HBU, I have been working in higher education for about 7 years.
During my own time in college my passion for helping college students began to grow. It was such a formative and life-changing time for me, and I wanted to help others have that experience. This passion took me overseas after graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Political Science, where I lived and taught English in a University setting for two years. I then returned to the U.S. where I completed my master’s degree in Intercultural Studies, and then transitioned to working in higher education full time. I have had the opportunity to work for several institutions, and one thing I love about HBU is that our foundation is centered on Christ. Not only does HBU prepare you to achieve your professional goals through our strong academic curriculum, but it also has staff and faculty that will support you personally and spiritually, to help you become all that God created you to be.
I look forward to working with you as you begin your journey to HBU!
