Breaking the mold: MBA graduate from WVU Chambers College becomes award winning high school teacher

MBA graduate Kristin Morvik is using her business education to educate the world.

Formerly a brand manager for corporate entities like Kroger and the Cincinnati Bengals, Morvik made a career transition to become a business education teacher at Boone County High School in Kentucky. Public education proved to be her true calling, yielding big results for Boone County students. Morvik - who is also involved as a dance coach and Future Business Leaders of America coach - recently won her district's Break the Mold Award, which is given to teachers who go above and beyond in connecting with the school community.

"I hope I can encourage my students to go into business," said Morvik, "And that they'll maybe be change agents for better ways of learning business."
