While attending West Virginia State University, I have participated in the PRSSA or the Public Relations Student Society of America.
During my time so far, I assisted in the development of new and innovative designs for media alerts. In 2011, WVSU celebrated it's 120th Anniversary. It was our goal to get the media's attention, so we did so by sending local media outlets boxes filled with cupcakes, streamers and an invitation to celebrate another year with us.
The largest scale project I have worked on was the Black and Gold Gala Awards, and the Album Release Party for Charleston, WV native, Nicci Canada's first album, Twenty Twelve. My responsibilities ranged in everything from writing media & press releases, tending to the social media aspects of the event, to decorating and working the event.
