Shavaughn Morris, who goes by Shevy, is a Penn State senior who has been DJing around State College for three years now. What started out as a hobby quickly turned into a paying job. Morris received his first board as a Christmas present from his parents, who have instilled a love of music in him since he was a child. He grew up playing the guitar and participating in his elementary and high school’s bands.
He went from playing around with djing during his freshman year, to playing parties at his fraternity, and now dj’s at local bars, such as Champs and Envy. Just the other week, Morris played at Penn State’s THON in a DJ battle against another local DJ. It was evident from the audience’s reaction to Shevy’s choices that he was the winner. Morris continues to gain popularity among Penn State’s students and always plays a packed house at the bars.

I will be graduating with a major in Broadcast Journalism and minors in Spanish and Psychology in May 2019. I have had a broad range of experience in the communications field, including an internship at FleishmanHillard’s D.C. office during Summer 2017. Following that, I spent Spring 2018 studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain where I improved my Spanish language skills. In Fall 2018, I started working as a field reporting for PSN TV and pitched, filmed, and edited news stories that aired on the show each week. I am currently pursuing a career in live video production.
