Marion Military Institute

Meet the Admissions Team

Brittany McGee Crawford

Director of Admissions

Welcome to Marion Military Institute! My name is Brittany McGee Crawford, and I am the Director of Admissions. 

I was born and raised in Demopolis, Alabama, and received a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of West Alabama. While at UWA, I was a 4 yr starter for the softball team, and involved in many campus activities.

Softball is what motivated me to move to Marion. Before becoming an admissions counselor, I was the assistant softball/pitching coach at MMI for two seasons. In October of 2011, I married my wonderful husband, Samuel. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, river trips, and playing with my two labs, Jimbo and Ty.

I am excited to be at Marion Military Institute! I truly believe in the life changing leadership opportunities that MMI offers! Students earn a superior education while becoming better people. Please contact me with any questions you have, or to schedule a campus visit! I look forward to seeing you at Marion Military Institute!

Eva Vasquez Painter

Admissions Counselor

Hello and Thank you for considering Marion Military Institute. I was raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and in May 2011, I  earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from the University of Georgia. Coming from a big city, I have learned to  absolutely love the rural life-style and plan to stay and build a family here in Marion. On the weekends, I enjoy trips to  the river and the many other outdoor activities Alabama can offer. The opportunities for fun are endless with the right  attitude. Of course, the bustling towns of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham are a short drive away when you need a taste of  urban life!
Before I joined MMI, I taught in an Alabama public high school for two years. As a former educator, I recognized right  away what a unique and well-rounded education MMI can offer. Whether your personal path is that of a civilian or in the military field, you will leave this institution a stronger leader with a set of core values that will benefit you in many facets of life. I hope you decide to take advantage of the many opportunities MMI can offer and call Marion your home! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or schedule a campus visit.
