Meet Kathleen Dougherty:
I am the FHSU Virtual College Online Student Communication Strategist, working with prospective and current online students. When I am not working I enjoy athletics. Whether it is watching an FHSU event, or playing intramural volleyball, I love to stay active.
My Masters Degree is from the University of Oklahoma with a concentration in Adult and Higher Education and I have worked in the Fort Hays State University Admission’s Office for 3 years. My work experience has given me a lot of knowledge working in higher education with students from multiple backgrounds; I can help answer your questions about Fort Hays State University!
