I know that my mom sacrificed a lot, a lot for me and her. I just admire how much she instilled in me -- hard work, trust, honesty, and I just hope I'm setting the example for my daughter.

Following Her Mother's Footsteps

In fourth grade, Lenell Hahn watched her mom make a life-altering choice -- choosing SEMO to pursue a career in education. Watching her choice flourish instilled a love for the University in Lenell. That love found Lenell back on campus years later as an official Redhawk.

Lenell Hahn, Southeast’s Director of Admissions since 2013, works tirelessly to make sure incoming freshman and their families feel at home. She knows all too well how much the campus experience can impact a student’s life, and her amazing team strives to make the experience unlike any other. Whether you see Lenell welcoming students on a Show Me Day or see her cheering on the Redhawks at athletic events, her passion for SEMO shines through and impacts every student that makes the University their home.
