Marion native Katrina Hancock is the new director of communications for Tabor College. She started work Monday.
Hancock graduated from Marion High School in 1995 and spent two years at Wichita State University. She then transferred to Bradley University n Peoria, Ill., on a full basketball scholarship.
She received bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and communications from Bradley in 2000. From 2001 to 2012 she worked as a weekend sports television anchor and reporter in Cheyenne, Wyo., Topeka, Toledo, Ohio, and Detroit, Mich. She covered nearly every major sporting event and was the color commentator for the Detroit Shock of the WNBA for the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
Hancock took the past year off to spend time with her family, travel, and start two businesses in Michigan.
“I’ve spent so much time away from Kansas that I decided it was time to find a job close to home,” Hancock said in a press release. “Tabor College is giving me a chance to be close to my family, plus an opportunity to tell positive stories about the students at a Christian college. It is going to be a new and exciting challenge in my journalism career.”
