Jennifer Verhagen is no stranger to political activism on the Fort Hays State University campus.

In October 2011, she assumed the role of coordinator of the American Democracy Project. She also served as president of Young Democrats. During the summer, she was named Center for Civic Leadership project coordinator and also will serve as a graduate assistant for Curt Brungardt, professor of leadership studies.

With an undergraduate degree from FHSU in political science, Verhagen is starting graduate school in August, working toward a master of liberal studies with a concentration in organizational leadership.

As far as career goals, "I'm looking into working in nonprofit," she said.
