Communications Specialist

Kristen Polk

Ten years after graduating from Mississippi State University, Kristen Polk returned to her alma mater to work as the Bagley College’s communications specialist. With a bachelor’s degree emphasizing in graphic design, she handles all the college’s design needs including print, web and social media.

Before joining the BCoE family, Polk worked as a web developer, graphic designer, and art director for universities and publishing groups. She is a member of the University and College Designers Association, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Public Relations Association of Mississippi, the Southern Public Relations Federation, and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.

Polk is originally from Columbus, Mississippi, and says that she is thrilled to return to Bulldog country. When she’s not designing, she enjoys photography, hiking and reading.
