Willie Barefield

Hello everyone! My name is Willie Barefield and I am a senior admission counselor. I was born in Joliet, IL and grew up in Kansas City, MO. I began my educational journey at Illinois College in 2009. During my time here at IC, I participated in Football, Track & Field, and Improv comedy. In 2013, I graduated from IC with a B.S. in Management and Organizational Leadership and a minor in Psychology. My time here at IC was amazing, from winning a ton of football games to performing in a college improv tournament. I can never replace those memories and hope to lead others to create their own.
I work with students who attend high schools in Southwestern Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and California.
