For over 5 years, Morgan has continued to be a noteworthy presence for the Verna J. Kirkness Education Foundation. Morgan attended and graduated the VJKF Program as a student in 2016 and worked as a summer student for the Foundation in following years as she was completing her studies at the University of Calgary. In 2018 Morgan joined the Board of Directors for a three year term in hopes of bringing a young, Indigenous, female voice to aid in the mission of the Verna J. Kirkness Education Foundation. After completing her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy in 2021, Morgan was hired as the Foundation’s Program Coordinator in January 2022. We are now excited to welcome her as the Foundation's new Program Director!
Having been an on-site coordinator in previous years, Morgan brings a substantial set of skills, knowledge, and familiarity pertinent to the role as Program Director. Morgan is eager and excited to be back working with our students, learning their stories, and encouraging others to learn about and give back to community.
Morgan is a proud member of the Driftpile Cree Nation and is passionate about working with Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
