Duncan Carter

Director of Admissions

Hey, I’m Duncan! The best advice I can give to anyone applying is to schedule a meeting with our team. As an Admissions Coach, I love to help applicants, take every step with them in the journey to becoming a student, and empower them to pursue their ministry calling through HC.  I’m currently in school to become a Licensed Professional Counselor, because I’m very passionate about psychology and helping people become mentally, spiritually, and emotionally healthy.

Justyn Benton

Admissions Coach

Hi! I’m Justyn! I just want to start by saying that I love Highlands College because, it changed my life for the better. Being a graduate from the Fall Class of 2021, I am freshly removed from the college, and can say with confidence that there is no better place to be. I am a newlywed and having a blast getting to do life with the love of my life. Some of my favorite hobbies are golf, bowling, and playing basketball. When I am not in the office you can most likely find me on the golf course. I am a strategic thinker who loves to help get people to where God is calling them. With that being said, I will do everything in my power to help new students walk in what God has for them.
