Matthew Musgrove wanted an opportunity to put his book knowledge to the test. Now a former FHSU student has come through to provide the opportunity.
Musgrove, Imperial, NE, junior majoring in political science at Fort Hays State University, was recently appointed as the Ellis County coordinator for Robin Jennison's gubernatorial campaign -- Jennison for Kansas. Jennison, of Healy, is a former FHSU student.
"I'm confident that the instruction that I've received at Fort Hays State will be of great use to me," said Musgrove. "And I know that the right opportunity and the right candidate have both come along at the same time."
In his 10 years in the Kansas Legislature, Jennison has served as speaker of the Kansas House, majority leader, chairman of the Appropriations Committee and assistant majority leader.
"Throughout the campaign, it has been extremely important to find talented and energetic young people to help spread our message," said Jennison. "I know Matthew will be a great help to our grassroots organization in Hays and Ellis County. His competence truly speaks volumes about the quality of education at Fort Hays State."
