Originally from Monument, CO, Morgan Wolfe was drawn to K-State from the very beginning. “I wore purple from the day I was born,” said Morgan. “I came to K-State because it’s where both my parents went to school and fell in love. I just always kind of knew it was my calling.”
This fall, Morgan will return to K-State to begin a new role. She will be joining the FSI team as the new Social Media and E-Newsletter Writer, and we couldn’t be happier to have her join us!
Morgan has had quite the busy summer juggling two jobs, the first with Momentum Advertising and PR. “I am responsible for doing all the PR and marketing work for a new neighborhood development called Banning Lewis Ranch,” said Morgan. “I write articles, work on quarterly magazines, coordinate concerts and special events, work with home-builders to promote their companies too, and have learned a lot about media buying as well.”
Her second summer job at Olson Plumbing and Heating has also provided valuable experience. “So far here I have written and developed the new summer commercial, done web-writing for the website, designed new business cards, infographics, and proposal documents, and put together promotional swag items for trade events,” said Morgan.
These work experiences have taught her a lot about her intended field. “Both jobs have helped me network tremendously,” said Morgan. “I’m really excited to graduate and begin a career soon.”
It’s a career she knows she’ll enjoy. “I like that public relations is so face-paced and people-oriented,” said Morgan. “Everything has deadlines, dates, and priorities to meet; and I’m constantly interacting with people, which makes the job way more fun.”
She’s hoping to bring the skills she developed and her excitement for the profession to the Food Science Institute. “I hope to get FSI noticed more around K-State and Manhattan, whether that be incorporating SnapChat, radio ads, or hosting special events for FSI around town,” said Morgan.
When she’s not working hard in her jobs or her classes, Morgan enjoys taking time for her various creative outlets; drawing caricatures of people or fun DIY projects. And of course, hanging out with her pet tarantula.
Morgan officially joins the FSI team August 20th! We’re thrilled to welcome her to the team, and she can’t wait to join it. “I’m super excited to join the FSI team and help promote the program,” said Morgan. “Not to mention also looking forward to taste testing all the FSI concoctions that will be created in the next year!”
