Shaun Pritchard
Cameron Park, CA
MLS Public Administrattion
Planning / Executive Management

Involved in public sector planning and executive management of public agencies in Missouri, Florida, and California since 1990. Enjoy cutting through the red tape to provide critical infrastructure improvement and human services to communities.

I choose to pursue the MLS Public Administrattion degree at FHSU because I knew this was a solid institution based on my undergraduate work at Northwest Missouri State University. While I had a great deal of work experience I had never had the opportunity to finalize my masters degree.

Throughout the process of study at FHSU I could not have dreamed of better support and direction. From my advisor, Dr. Rackaway, to the folks in the administrative offices – quality, caring people. This program offered in-depth study, while allowing me to continue employment. I could not have made a better choice than FHSU.

       Jeremiah has an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from “LAUTECH” Nigeria. He served at the National Universities Commission, a regulating body for Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria before starting his graduate study at Fort Hays State University. He is currently in his 2nd year of the MBA program concentrating on Management Information Systems. He is the Research Assistant at the Institute for New Media Studies.

         The MBA program at FHSU is a very challenging but accommodating program. The faculty members are good at what they do, they are always there to help and point you in the right direction. The Advisor “Rachel” also does an awesome work, she treats every case and request with passion and accelerated alacrity. The areas of concentrations available in the FHSU MBA program are broad and very relevant to the business world of today. There’s a variety to choose from in almost every field ranging from accounting, INT, MIS, Healthcare etc.

Meet our students – Heida Halldorsdottir

                                               Heida Halldorsdottir
Roswell, Georgia since immigrating from Iceland to the US in 2005.

Figurative sculptor. Co-Founder of Cowgirl Studios in Alpharetta, Georgia. Figurative sculpture teacher at Clay-West Art Center of the City of Roswell, Georgia. Full-time ceramics graduate student at FHSU.

I am an artist; it took me a long time to be able to say that, but now I feel like I am. My first degree was in biology, but art was always calling me, so I went back to school and got my degree in art teaching. After that, I taught for few years and worked in the medical field in marketing. After I had moved to the US, I had the opportunity to become a full-time studio artist. However, I always felt like I needed more education and a group of friends that share my love for the medium. My work is about my native country, my belief in the hidden world and the soul world. I enrolled in this program as it was one of the few online programs in ceramics. I appreciate being able to work when I have free time, and I needed to be able to manage my time between school, work, my studio and my family. I like being able to manage my time and I also love meeting my teachers and my fellow graduate student that are doing different things than what I am doing. In this program, I have met people that love the “dirt” as much as I do. I am excited to see where they will fly in the future. After I started the program, I am applying to more shows, and pushing my work further. My professional life is more structured, helping me become a better artist.
