Morgan Kristensen Joins Community Partners as InternCommunity Partners is excited to introduce our new intern Morgan Kristensen. Morgan is a junior at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and is majoring in political science with a minor in public health. She graduated from Minden High School in 2011 and is bringing her experiences from rural Nebraska schools to the table as we plan for new school programing in 2014.
Morgan’s primary focus will be supporting Buffalo County Community Partners’ Violence Prevention Coalition by researching violence prevention curriculum and finalizing our coalition’s strategic plan for January 2014.
“My advisor told me about Community Partners, and we agreed it would be a great place for me to get some experience,” Morgan said. “I love my minor and was excited to hear Kearney had a public health organization for me to work at. Hopefully, I can use some of the information I have learned in class here.”
Morgan’s hobbies include running and playing golf. She played on UNK’s women’s golf team her freshman year. She plans to attend law school and go into healthcare law. Expect to hear about her work with the Violence Prevention Coalition in the near future.
