Oregon Open Campus Welcomes New Coordinators
This has been a year of change for Open Campus! Outreach and Engagement is excited to welcome five new coordinators to the Oregon Open Campus team. We are excited about the unique qualities of each coordinator and look forward to the innovations they will create.
- Emily Henry joined the team in May after receiving her PhD in fisheries and wildlife. In addition to disciplinary research on aquatic ecosystems, Emily also has a wealth of experience in education (teaching and disciplinary-based education research) and outreach. In Tillamook, Emily has been working on a variety of programming, including college readiness programming for middle and high school students and programs for youth and adult entrepreneurs.
- In Prineville, Alicia Winchester Jantz recently joined the team with the Crook County Open Campus. Before Moving to Oregon in 2009, Alicia taught special education in California. She enjoys volunteering in her community. Her passion for Oregon Open Campus comes from being able to work hand-in-hand with community partners, and helping to facilitate ongoing engagement with OSU and the community.
- Meggan McLarrin has been a part of the SWOCC community for the past eight years before joining the Oregon State University Team in Coos and Curry Counties. Currently, Meggan is completing her master's degree in mental health counseling from Walden University. She enjoys working for OSU because she can share her experiences and knowledge about being a rural student, and is able to be involved in the development of her southern coast communities. In addition to her work and academic pursuits, Meggan is a wife and mother of two children.
- Most recently, Ann Harris joined our team as the coordinator for Hood River and Wasco Counties. Ann has her master’s degree in social work from UC Berkeley and, for the past eight years, has been with Columbia Gorge Community College as the Career Counselor and Academic Adviser. Ann and her family have been in the Gorge for over 20 years, and she brings a long list of connections and passion for both counties.
- Keely Moxley wears many hats in Klamath Falls, one of her new projects is being the Open Campus Coordinator focusing on students pursuing a four-year agriculture science degree through OSU’s Ecampus. Keely received her master’s degree in animal science from Oregon State University. Just three months ago, Keely and her husband, Nick, welcomed their new baby girl, Brenna.
