Public Information Officer earns praise for promoting all things Seguin
SEGUIN, Texas –For more than three years, the city’s Public Information Officer has dedicated herself to promoting Seguin. In that time, she has led a citywide branding campaign, managed an entire website redesign and wrote hundreds of press releases covering every aspect of city government. Morgan Ash was selected as the August 2018 Employee of the Month.
“I was completely shocked! I’m usually the one showing up unannounced to surprise the recipient with HR and the City Manager to take their photo and write their news release. I couldn’t believe I was actually the one having my photo taken,” said Ash.
Ash was nominated by the city manager who says “since joining our staff Morgan has embraced Seguin and the community” by participating in the Citizens Fire Academy, the Citizens Police Academy and graduating from the Chamber of Commerce’s year-long Leadership Seguin program. She also served on the Guadalupe County Crime Stoppers Board and helped host their statewide conference.
“I encourage everyone to take a few hours out of their week to learn more about how the city runs. You can register for the fire and police citizen’s academies or by checking out a city council meeting. It really opens your eyes on how much city leaders and staff are working to make Seguin an even better city to live, work and play,” added Ash.
Ash has also produced several public education/promotional videos highlighting ‘unsung’ city departments like brush, code compliance and streets. The videos showcase how these departments and their staff are working to improve the city every day. She also managed the city’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Nextdoor accounts. She keeps them updated with posts to keep citizens informed with the latest city news and events. ###
