New Employees

In this post we’ll introduce you to two new members of the Middlebury College staff who are working in Facilities Services and College Advancement. Please join us as we welcome Michael and Kevin to campus!

Michael Tester was hired in August as a crew custodian-floor in Facilities Services. Michael moved to Vermont a year ago, but was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area and spent four years in the U.S. Marines. He sports a laid back attitude and work experience that has given him a large variety of opportunities.


Kevin Morgenstein Fuerst is the new assistant director of annual giving in College Advancement. Kevin graduated from Colgate University in 2005 and earned a master’s degree in higher education administration from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2006. Prior to coming to Middlebury, Kevin was an institutional researcher in Cambridge, Mass., and a K-12 school district administrator in Chapel Hill, N.C. Kevin loves all things food–growing, cooking, and eating. He shares this food obsession with his wife, Ilyse, who is a faculty member at UVM.
