Recent student employee becomes full-time employee for FHSU Alumni Association

Karl Pratt has gone from student worker to graduate and alumnus and now to full-time employee of the Fort Hays State University Alumni Association.

Pratt, who graduated in May with a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance, worked in the alumni office throughout his undergraduate years. This week he began work as the Alumni Association's program coordinator for communication and chapter development.

"He is sure to excel in his new role," said DeBra Prideaux, executive director of alumni and governmental relations. "He is versed in almost all elements of the association operations, including providing support materials for FHSU Magazine, designing the FHSU-TigerTalk electronic newsletter and serving as a trainer for students and board members."

Pratt said that he is most looking forward to working with the FHSU Magazine and meeting people that he has previously only known through e-mail and phone conversations.

He said that an upcoming renovation of the Alumni Association website will play a crucial part in its advancement.

"I am very excited to continue developing my non-music-related skills in the realms of communication and publication," said Pratt. "I look forward to extending my knowledge of Tiger alumni and friends throughout Kansas and the USA."
