Morgan VonHaden holds a Masters of Science in Strategic Leadership, graduated from Leadership SD 2016 and from Leadership Rapid City 2010, and has worked extensively with non-profit agencies for the past 20 years, specifically in high poverty/high needs areas. VonHaden is the BHSSC South Dakota Statewide Family Engagement Center Director. VonHaden lives by the following statement: “It is said that every child should be held to the same standards; I also believe all children should have a safe place to sleep at night, a warm bed, food, and a loving parent or caregiver. Children should not have to worry if they have to share a blanket with their sibling or cousin. Children should not have to worry about if they are going to get to eat supper, or just wait until they get back to school. All children should be held to the same level of standards, but they should also have a fair start to get there.”
In her free time, Morgan enjoys spending as much time with her husband and three children. Two boys who actively play baseball and little girl who tries to keep up with the brothers. They also enjoy hiking, camping, and spending as much time outside as possible, no matter the weather!
