Megan Hirt, c’08, j’08, joined the Association team in March as assistant editor of Kansas Alumni magazine. She earned degrees in French and journalism and has worked as an editor since graduating from KU, first at Mother Earth News magazine and later at Golf Course Management magazine. As a student, she wrote for and edited Jayplay, the weekly magazine published by The University Daily Kansan at the time. An article she wrote for the Kansan in 2008, about college students struggling with alcoholism, placed second in the nation in the in-depth writing category of the Hearst Journalism Awards Program. Megan lives in Lawrence and enjoys exploring the Sunflower State, particularly small or abandoned towns.
