20 May 2018 Julia Dossett Morgan joins Winthrop Rockefeller Institute
The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute recently announced it has hired Julia Dossett Morgan as director of marketing and communications.
“Julia’s spirit and enthusiasm for our mission and her considerable experience in nonprofit marketing is just the right fit at the right time for the Institute,” said Executive Director Dr. Marta Loyd. “In the spirit of Winthrop Rockefeller’s commitment to collaborative dialogue, we convene people with diverse perspectives to search for solutions to challenging issues, and we look forward to having Julia help us tell our story.”
Dossett Morgan comes to the Institute from Reynolds Performance Hall in Conway, where she was the director of marketing and finance. She brings more than 14 years of nonprofit marketing and management experience, including seven years at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago and 2-plus years at Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis.
Julia holds a bachelor’s degree in advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and is in progress toward a master’s degree in public administration with a nonprofit management focus from Arkansas State University.
She and her family moved from the Midwest to Arkansas in 2014, when her husband, Dr. Andrew Morgan, joined the music faculty at Hendrix College. They have two sons and reside in Conway.
“Neither Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller nor myself were born in Arkansas, but he found and I find this state to be an amazing place with endless possibilities and opportunities,” said Dossett Morgan. “I’m thrilled to join the talented team at the Institute atop beautiful Petit Jean Mountain, and look forward to working together to further the Governor’s vision for Arkansas, our region and the world.”
Also recently joining the Institute staff is Tiffany Henry, who will be serving as a program officer. Henry previously served as the coordinator of sponsored programs and university initiatives at Arkansas Tech University. Her duties included supporting economic development in the River Valley by facilitating community based entrepreneurial programming and assisting faculty research development through grant administration.
Henry is on the board of Main Street Russellville, a member of Leadership Russellville Class 32 and lead organizer of 1 Million Cups Russellville. She holds a master of science degree in psychology from Arkansas Tech University and a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from California State University, Stanislaus.
Henry resides lives in Russellville with her husband, Clay, and their two children.
