Although Youth of the Year(YOY) has passed us, our work isn’t quite done yet. I have spent the past week finishing all things YOY. I created a thank you letter that will be spent to all sponsors from the event. I also created our last media release revealing our Youth of the Year winner.
In addition, Professor McCullough’s PR Campaigns class will assist our organization in securing a small press tour for our YOY winner, Caleshia Ferguson. In doing so, they released their first news release this week and it was picked up by WRBL. I’m very excited for the group’s success and cant wait to see what else they have in store for our organization. Not to mention, the work Professor McCullough’s PR class committed to last semester is seeing the light of day in ArtBeat 2014. We have several doors, painted by the kids displayed in from of the Columbus Library. The doors are a display of the clubs’ 75 years of opening Great Futures to kids in the Chattahoochee Valley.
In other areas at my internship, we have been focusing on our Friends and Family Campaign as well as our new Women’s Giving Circle. I have created campaign letters and news releases regarding both events. Not to mention, I have been hands on in creating flyers that will be distributed to our board members containing success stories within our clubs.
Our work never stops in the PR and marketing department, but I cant complain as this is giving me the best experience I could ever wish for!
