Morgan Felts Class of 2007
Graduating summa cum laude from Wesleyan in 2007, Morgan was the College’s first political science major. Previously, students interested in political science studied a curriculum that earned them a degree in history/political science. Not having the same passion for history that she did for political science, Morgan was allowed to enter the new program and earned her degree solely in political science. Morgan’s choice to attend Wesleyan was largely due to the high acceptance rate of Wesleyan graduates by graduate schools. Immediately after graduating from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2010, Morgan was hired at her current job in Atlanta as a staff attorney for the charter schools division of the Georgia Department of Education.
Regarding being a female lawyer, Morgan said, “There have been times when I felt that the profession still seems to be a man’s world, but I’m also pleased to say that those times have been few and far between. Maybe things are really changing.”
