Senior Spotlight: Morgan Smedley
With graduation around the corner, seniors are finishing up the semester with last minute projects and enjoying their final months at Shippensburg.

Morgan Smedley is a senior at Shippensburg University who not only has her class load, but works at Volvo Construction company, is a member of Alpha Omicron Pi and is the secretary for Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

Smedley is majoring in management with a concentration in Human Resources, and has been working at Volvo for the past nine months, along with all of her other extracurricular activities.

Smedley is very driven when it comes to work and she takes it very seriously. Some of her duties at Volvo include setting up interviews, interviewing with supervisors, helping with company events, assisting with employee orientation, keeping track of people when they need salary increases and making personnel files. She does a lot for the company and has had to do many different tasks giving her experience in her field.

“I feel that working at Volvo has really prepared me for the real world after graduation. I have learned a lot working there and have grown as a person,” Smedley said.

With everything that Smedley has been involved in, she was able to become more responsible and manage her time. She is applying for jobs now and hopes to live somewhere in Philadelphia. With her experience and determination she is sure to become a successful woman.
