DAFVM Spotlight Employee: Nathan Gregory
Nathan Gregory advocates for Mississippians through his work as a writer in the Office of Agricultural Communications on the MSU Starkville campus. He promotes science-based information by writing media releases that go out to the state’s newspapers and TV outlets, as well as articles for LandMarks and Extension Matters magazines.
With his background in journalism, Nathan enjoys writing. But his work includes shooting video for social media and getting out the word about what this team writes and growing their audience requires almost as much effort as they put in to produce articles.
“I learn a lot about things that Extension researches and the different outreach efforts they do that I had no idea about when I was a student here 10 to 12 years ago,” Nathan said. “I enjoy learning about what goes on in the Division of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine and having the opportunity to share that information with others.”
Nathan likes meeting new people whose lives have been improved in some way thanks to Extension.
Nathan was a journalism major in college and worked as a newspaper reporter for several years before he came back to MSU four years ago.
“I chose to write for MSU Extension because I look back on my time as a student at MSU as some of the best years of my life and was grateful to have an opportunity to come back,” Nathan said.
Nathan’s wife, Kate, is a senior library associate at MSU. They have a 2-month-old daughter, Alline, and a cat named Julius. Nathan is an avid MSU sports fan. He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, playing disc golf, collecting records, watching college sports, gardening, playing music and fishing. They are members of First United Methodist Church in Starkville.
