Dr. Morgan Blount was the head of the inaugural Operations Analyst Program. At first, I was apprehensive about the program. Fortunately, those fears were quickly dispelled under Morgan’s leadership. From the outset, she set a tone of empathy, transparency, and accountability that put us all at ease. But what I admired most about Morgan’s leadership style is her ability to make you feel truly valued—even in a fully virtual environment. She always took the time to give each of us individualized guidance and support, which motivated us to perform at our peak.
