Assistant Director of Admissions

In coming to work at Kenyon, Lee continues a family tradition and returns to the place of his birth. As the son of Lisa Schott, Kenyon's alumni director for 23 years, Lee is a born and bred Gambier/Mount Vernon resident and frequently attended Kenyon events while growing up. Indeed, he never missed any of the campus-wide picnics, although in early years he often observed the doings from the comfortable confines of Kenyon's famous upside-down tree. He even served as ballboy for the men's basketball and soccer teams and the women's volleyball team.
Lee left the Gambier area to attend Ohio Wesleyan University, from which he graduated in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in psychology. He played varsity soccer there and helped the Bishops win their one-hundredth conference title his freshman year. As a college student, he also worked for the admissions office and cashiered at the local supermarket. Service has always been a priority for Lee, and in his free time he volunteered with multiple organizations within the school and in the surrounding community, for which he received college recognition. Following graduation, Lee continued his work with underprivileged communities, working as an AmeriCorps volunteer with Columbus (Ohio) Housing Partnership, an affordable housing non-profit, where he raised more than $160,000 in green renovations for homes in Columbus and worked with residents to bring their homes up to Ohio Housing standards.
A lover of the outdoors, Lee worked two summers in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park, where he climbed ten of the peaks including the Grand Teton. He enjoys backpacking, camping, mountaineering, and cycling. But what he enjoys most is a strong community and stimulating conversation with friends, which he knew he would always find in Gambier. He claims that his desire to work in the admissions office had nothing to do with the fact that the building is located directly adjacent to the upside-down tree.
