Albert Lloyd

Graduating Senior, Athlete, and Advertising & PR Student passionate about Event Planning.

Summary

Drury University has offered me the chance to engage in my learning and plan for my future. As an elite college athlete, I let the skills I have learned drive me in my everyday life. By being engaged not just in the classroom but on campus as Event Coordinator for Advertising & PR Club and as an Intern for AthleteNetwork.com, it has taught me leadership qualities and enhanced my organizational skills. With the constant changes in advertising, this major will allow me to maintain my day-to-day philosophy of keeping my mind, body, and soul active.
