Admission Counselor Morning Naughton is a 1997 graduate of Warren Wilson College with a bachelor’s degree in outdoor leadership. She was born in Santa Fe, N.M., and moved west before heading to the Southeast, then the Northeast. “I like to claim lots of places,” she says with a smile. Before coming to work in the Office of Admission, Morning traveled from Vermont to Honduras and Southeast Asia, working in agriculture. She also worked with the National Outdoor Leadership School in Baja, Calif.

Away from the office, her favorite activity on campus, where she lives, is walking the Sawmill Loop trail at sunset to get unexpected views to the west. She spends much of her free time with her son and enjoys sunshine, ocean breezes, smiles and laughter, music, reading, relaxing days outdoors, traveling and the unknown.

“I am dedicated to working with prospective students and their families. It’s a privilege and honor to play such an integral role in the college search journey,” Morning says.
