Meet the Arnold Team

Brenna Young

Brenna Young - Interim Director of Jefferson College Arnold

Hello! I am Brenna Young, the Interim Director of the Arnold location! I got my start in higher education as a part-time advisor at JCA, and this experience instilled in me a passion for helping students find their path. I now have over ten years of experience in higher education and a background in admissions, advising and retention, and financial aid. I am very excited to have come full circle and be back serving our students, community, and faculty at our Arnold location! I studied theater as a student at Jefferson College and at Southeast Missouri State University, and I recently completed my Master's Degree in Higher Education Leadership from Missouri Baptist University. When I am not dedicating my time to helping students achieve their goals, I am spending time with my husband, son, and Great Dane. I enjoy singing, walking, and shuttling my toddler to all his events and play dates. I can be reached at 636-481-3286 or by email at

Frank Allen

Frank Allen - Enrollment Services Assistant

Hello, my name is Frank Allen. I recently joined Jefferson College as an Enrollment Services Assistant, and have already gained a great deal of knowledge and experience. The learning environment at Jeffco has been enriching, and I'm excited to continue expanding my knowledge. Specifically, I have a keen interest in studying Computer Information Systems right here at Jeffco, as I believe it will open up exciting opportunities in the world of technology.

Beyond academics, I have a passion for popular culture. Star Trek has always fascinated me with its exploration of the vast unknowns of space and the possibilities of the future. The themes of exploration, cooperation, and adventure resonate with me.

Additionally, I enjoy immersing myself in the world of Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), a role-playing game that allows me to exercise my creativity and engage in epic storytelling with friends. You can find me at the Enrollment Services counter in Arnold and I can be reached at 636-481-3595 or

In case of an emergency, please dial 911. JCPD seeks to provide you with a safe environment whether you are a student, faculty, staff or visitor to our college.
