Jennifer Morgan Beuchat
Valley Falls, Kansas

Jennifer Morgan-Beuchat has served many theatrical roles in her life, including professional actor, designer, and director but is most proud of her role as a teacher. Morgan-Beuchat chartered Troupe 6178 at Jefferson County North High School and has revitalized Troupe 287 at Leavenworth Senior High School. In addition, Morgan-Beuchat served as director of children’s theatre for arts and humanities councils in southern Kansas and served on the Kansas Thespians board as advocacy liaison chair. She also serves on the Educational Theatre Association’s Advocacy Leadership Network co-chairing the Rural and Small Schools Committee, the Educational Theatre Foundation Chapter Advisory Committee, and the cadre for EdTA’s lesson plan adjudication. As treasurer for the Kansas Alliance for the Arts in Education and one of the writers of the Kansas Theatre Curriculum, she has additional opportunities to serve students across the state. According to her nomination from State Representative Jeff Pittman, “Theatre had grown tired in this military town until Jennifer Morgan-Beuchat entered stage right. She brought a light and a vision that has led and inspired hundreds of students every year since she arrived. Jennifer Morgan-Beuchat’s years of experience, knowledge, and talent all contribute to making our local high school theatre troupe a golden example of what a great program should be.”
