Meet the Arnold Team

Holly Lincoln - Director of Jefferson College Arnold
Holly Lincoln - Director of Jefferson College Arnold

Hi, I’m Holly. I am the Director of Jefferson College Arnold. I graduated from Mexico High School in Mexico, MO in 1992. I have an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Funeral Service Education, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology Education and a Masters of Arts in Education. I moved to the St. Louis area in 1997 and to Jefferson County in 2005. I have a daughter in the Fox C-6 District who is looking forward to being a Viking some day! I have worked in higher education since 2001. I began my career as a science instructor and academic coordinator for a career school. I came to Jefferson College in July 2007. I started as the Assistant Registrar, which then grew into becoming the Assistant Director of Admissions and Student Records. In January of 2014, I became the Director of Enrollment Services and got the opportunity to go between the Hillsboro and Arnold locations. It was a great experience helping students at both locations. In August 2019, I joined the Arnold team full-time. I am very excited for the opportunity to see how we can grow and develop our Arnold location. I am very proud of achieving my college degrees as I am a first generation student. Which means that neither of my parents went to college and I am the first in my family to go to college. I know that going to college can be an overwhelming process. If I can help you to take your next step towards being a Viking, please feel free to reach out to me. You can send me an email at hlincoln@jeffco.edu or call me at 636-481-3230.

Michael Pingel - Enrollment Services Assistant

Hello there! My name is Michael Pingel and I am an Enrollment Services Assistant at Jefferson College Arnold.

I currently take evening classes at Missouri Baptist University to receive a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and Secondary Education.
