Madalyn Piper is the new Foundation Office Coordinator for Morgan Community College. Madalyn was born and raised in Morgan County, after graduating from Brush High School she continued her education at Colorado State University. While at CSU, Madalyn served on many committees such as the Agri-Business Association and the Seedstock Team, she graduated with a Bachelor degree in Agricultural Business, minor in Media Studies. She then worked for a brokerage company, and at Farmers Bank in Fort Collins, CO. During this time she met her husband, and had their daughter. Madalyn’s love of agriculture, and wanting to raise their daughter in a small town, prompted them to look for opportunities away from the Front Range, and brought them back to her hometown. Madalyn is excited for this opportunity to give back to her community, and college that helped give her a jump start to her own college education through MCC’s concurrent enrollment program.
