Autumn Lusk started with Penn State Talent Search in 2016 as the middle school counselor for the newly awarded McKeesport Grant. She now primarily works with high school students there and has also taken on the role of Social Media Campaign Manager, collaborating with all Penn State Talent Search Programs to capture student stories and images to show the many ways that #TRIOWORKS. Having grown up in a rural area and been a first-generation college student, her favorite part of the job is now creating opportunities for students to experience the world outside of their community and county, and genuinely enjoys connecting with other professionals to make it possible. Prior to joining the team, Autumn worked in a variety of settings as an English and social studies teacher, even spending a season co-teaching algebra. She still uses those skill sets often with students and peers.
