Kimberly Newton '16

Associate Director of Admissions Operations


Hello! My name is Kimberly Newton, a 2016 graduate of Catawba College with a Bachelor’s of Science in Sports Management. While not a traditional student, most of my classes were taken with the day program and I commuted daily from Harrisburg, NC.

Having just ended my career as a Catcher with the Guilford College Softball program due to injury, I chose to transfer before my sophomore year to Catawba because it was a small school that felt like home with a calming sense of belonging. Great enjoyment was experienced with the interaction that I could receive with faculty in smaller class size which inspired me to change my original major and realize my true potential. I returned to Catawba professionally in 2017.

Prior to Catawba College my background is in Motorsports where I still share a passion for the fast paced and competitive industry. I have a strong network in this industry due to my various roles assumed, positions held and relationships developed through shared experiences in the production of numerous large scale events.
I also have a passion for organization, timelessly, and attention to detail.

These passions and skill set allow me to excel and thrive in my current position of Associate Director of Admissions Operations. I manage the completeness of all operational tasks within the department. I also handle all decision processing of applicants.

Feel free to e-mail me at with any questions. In order to receive more information please complete our Information Request Form. I look forward to working with you during your application process.
