Capstone Scholars

Courtney Heier

Graduate Assistant for the Capstone Scholars Program


Courtney is a proud Kansas Citian but likes to pretend she is also from Fort Worth, Texas, where she received a B.S. in Kinesiology from Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!!). There, she spent most of her time in mentor positions for first- and second-year students through the Leadership Center, Student Government and Greek Life. She is now a first-year graduate student in the master's program for Higher Education & Student Affairs at USC. Courtney loves colored pens, sticky notes, being too extroverted for her own good, hiking, D-I-Y projects, skiing, her Spotify "feels" playlist, fishing, Saturday mornings at Soda City and Sunday mornings at church. She is commonly known for her cookies and made fun of for her food. You can find her on Instagram @courtskitch.
