Barboursville, West Virginia, native, Brooke Estep loved everything about Marshall University on her first campus tour. She was accepted as a member of the Society of Yeager Scholars, studied public relations and English, and believes the opportunities that the program offered far exceeded what she saw at other schools.
“Marshall was always such a natural fit. It’s always been easy to promote all the good things happening at Marshall and in Huntington. As someone who benefited from the various programs and endowments at the university, I want to do everything in my power to pay it forward to a new generation of students,” explained Brooke.
Developing relationships with alumni and friends in southern Florida, California and the local Tri-State area, Brooke, a director of philanthropy, enjoys hearing people’s stories and helping them impact generations of Marshall students.
Brooke resides in Huntington, West Virginia, and enjoys traveling with friends and family, learning new cooking and baking skills and serving in her local church.
“I hope that Marshall University grows to be a beacon of light for West Virginia and a magnet for incredibly talented and intelligent people. Marshall already serves the Huntington community, but I think the potential for impact is just now being unleashed.”
