One of the Best and Brightest, HOPE Senior Social Media Fellow Katelyn Norris Makes A Lasting Impression


This week, Operation HOPE pays tribute to one of its most dynamic and memorable Fellows, Katelyn Norris 

“The entire Operation HOPE Family wishes to express its deepest appreciation for Katelyn’s leadership, visioning and implementation of a very strong and effective social media program as the HOPE Senior Social Media Fellow,” said Global Chief of Branding, Marketing and Communications Rod McGrew. “Katelyn has left a lasting impression of creativity and professionalism that will be truly missed. We extend to Katelyn our best wishes for all of her future endeavors. She will always be a member of the HOPE family.”

Katelyn joined HOPE in December 2012 as the Senior Social Media Fellow, quickly becoming an integral member of the communication's team. Her ability to articulate concepts and connect lose ends made her a valuable team member who was much sought after to participate on projects. 

As a senior fellow, Katelyn lead a social media and communications team of junior fellows and interns. Through her guidance HOPE was able to promote and cover special events in real time using social media channels including Twitter and Facebook. With her leadership, HOPE has made great gains in its social media presence.

In addition to leading the charge for all things social media, Katelyn was chiefly responsible for drafting and organizing the organization’s news arm, the weekly HOPE Report. Whether it was creating graphics, putting together quotes, captioning photos or editing stories, Katelyn’s attention to detail and skilled level of execution brought a level of quality and professionalism to the publication it had not previously reached. 

With her Fellowship ending in December, Katelyn moves on to other opportunities to use her extraordinary talent. She is a gifted communicator whose talents have greatly impacted and improved Operation HOPE’s web presence and outreach.
