“I look forward to working with donors and alumni to increase meaningful experiences for students, expand opportunities, and ultimately support the next generation of Idaho leaders,” she said. “As enrollment increases at CAL and ISU overall, we are poised for continued growth, and I am excited to engage our supporters in this inspiring moment.”

Dean of the college, Dr. Kandi Turley Ames said, “I am thrilled that Morgan has joined the College of Arts and Letters team! Her professional experience and passion will help us make the dreams of our students and their families a reality.”

Outside of work, Stinson volunteers as a member of the Board of Directors for the Southeast Idaho Pride Foundation working to support the LGBTQ+ community locally. She lives in Pocatello with her partner and two dogs, who all enjoy the amazing recreation southeast Idaho has to offer.
