I have to say thank you to @candicenicolepr @1mrking @iamkimwimbishpr
for making my Public Relations class at Hampton University AMAZING this semester!!! My mission as a young college professor is ALL about the application: can you apply what you are being taught? And to bring the real-world into the classroom.
allow my class to use his event @blackalumniball
for their communications campaigns where 4 students received the opportunity to attend the event in Charlotte, NC as a result of their work in class.
guest lectured on the topic of The PR Pitch. Using the Black Alumni Ball, which is her client, to teach students how to pitch to the media.
gave insight into her experience as the lead publicist on the Ashanti Billie Case, which I used as a case study during my lecture on Crisis Managment in Public Relations.
This opens up internship opportunities and connections to my students within the field that they desire to enter upon graduation. I'm grateful! As @1mrking
tells me "Keisha, this is game changing! I wish my professors did this for me while I was in college." HONORED!
