Myiah Clemons helps students find community  

embedded-news-myiah-clemons-650x500.webpMorehead State welcomes Myiah Clemons (Class of 2022) as the new manager of the Eagle Diversity Education Center and coordinator for student diversity and inclusion. 

As a 2020 graduate of the Craft Academy for Excellence in Science & Mathematics and Morehead State, she brings a student perspective to this new role.  

"There weren't many students or staff that looked like me. However, the Eagle Diversity Education Center alleviated that sense for me," she said. "The center provided a safe space for under-represented minorities to feel at home."  

She works to ensure that under-represented minority students feel safe and supported at MSU as the coordinator of First Year Programs and Second Year Programs for Diversity and Inclusion. This includes managing the Eagle Diversity Education Center. 

"When I was offered this job at MSU, I was extremely excited. Working with students is something I genuinely enjoy doing," she said. "I love serving as a mentor for not only students that look like me but any student at this campus."  

As a student, she was engaged in many activities on campus. As a Craft Academy student, she joined the Black Gospel Ensemble, the Black Student Union, Women's Virtue and the DREAMS program and served as a Craft Academy ambassador. As an undergraduate MSU student, she remained active in those organizations and was president of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.  

Clemons said she owes much of her success as an undergraduate student to relationships she formed with staff at EDEC, particularly former assistant director Dr. Cory Clark (Class of 2020).  

"Dr. Clark mentored me throughout my experience on campus until he left the University. He always encouraged me to go above and beyond," she said. "He kept me, and many others, on track and he always held us accountable."

After graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting in 2022, she is continuing her education at MSU to earn a Master of Business Administration. She hopes to increase the number of students who utilize the center and help diverse student organizations increase their membership numbers.   

Clemons wants to use her experience to support and mentor students.  

"As a former student, I think I can bring experience that will benefit students. I have been in their same shoes, and I won my battles. I graduated despite not having many graduates in my family. I graduated with honors. I went to graduate school, the first in my family. I started a job right out of college," Clemons said. "I stand as an example that I looked toward as a child and as a student."  

Clemons can be reached at or 606-783-9051.
