Traci Konrade
Executive Director
Downtown Hays Development Corporation
Hays, KS

I immediately fell in love with downtown Hays and the experiences I had on the FHSU campus. My degree required many courses in the Management and Marketing department, and I instantly felt comfortable with the professors. I wanted to attend a university where I could feel like an individual and not disappear in a classroom of hundreds. FHSU was a perfect fit. My education provided the tools for achieving success in my career. I am currently the Executive Director of the Downtown Hays Development Corporation. In addition, I opened T Studio Design, a full-service photography and design business, in 2009. The marketing skills I acquired at FHSU are a huge component of my ability to work with a wide range of people. Downtown Hays gave me a home when I moved here in 2005, and I am so glad I can give back to such a wonderful district!
