Trinity -Byrnes promotes Nunn
Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School recently announced the promotion of social studies teacher and assistant college counselor Weston Nunn to Director of College Placement. Nunn will be in charge of Trinity-Byrnes’s extensive college readiness program.
“I’m really excited to be at the helm of such an important aspect of our mission: to set our students up to succeed in the colleges or universities of their choice,” Nunn said. “The college admissions landscape is becoming more complex every year, so it’s crucial for students to have an advocate with access to the latest and most accurate resources.”
Nunn’s purview includes guiding students in the junior class through standardized testing and identifying colleges and programs to which they will be applying. Nunn will work with students in the senior class one-on-one to hone essays and personal statements for admission and scholarships. He will continue planning visits from college admissions officers to Trinity-Byrnes, and scheduling group tours of college campuses throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.
“With so many colleges and universities to choose from,” he said, “it’s hard for students to know what’s out there, so it’s important not only to hear about programs from their own admissions officers, but to tour college campuses to get a feel for where they might like to continue their studies.”
Last year, Trinity-Byrnes hosted representatives from Harvard, Wake Forest, Davidson, Tulane, Washington University in St. Louis, Duke, the University of South Carolina, Presbyterian College, Wofford College, Auburn University, and Rhodes College, amongst others.
In addition to his role as Director of College Placement, Nunn will continue to teach AP European History and World History during the regular academic year.
“I’m very thankful to Mr. Hoffman for the opportunity to step into this new role,” remarks Nunn. “It’s going to be a challenge, to say the least, but exciting as well. I’m looking forward to getting started.”
