The External Affairs Department handles the Federation’s lobbying and public policy initiatives.

The Federation’s Matthew Durdin said he looks forward to seeing Harris’ calm demeanor and penchant for organization impact the department.

“We’re excited to welcome Hayden to our team,” said Durdin, the External Affairs Department director. “Her work and organizational skills will create a firm foundation for our team to build on when we meet with stakeholders, legislators and public officials.”

Harris will complete her bachelor’s degree in human services from Troy University this fall. She’s pursuing a minor in global general business. Harris lives in Pike Road, where she enjoys spending time with family and friends, being outdoors and playing with her dog, Rylee.
