Morgan Lorenz

President

Hi! My name is Morgan Lorenz and I feel so privileged to serve as the chapter president for Kappa Xi! I am a sophomore studying business finance and management with the goal to take over my family’s local business. I am a fourth-generation Nevadan, born and raised in Reno and I never thought that staying in my hometown for college would make me grow this much. Being a part of Sigma Kappa has pushed me outside of my comfort zone and helped me grow into a confident, supportive, and strong individual. I hope to continue the legacy my sisters have worked hard to build and to motivate our members to be the best versions of themselves possible. Kappa Xi has some big goals for 2021 and I’m so excited to see where this year takes this chapter!
