During my time as a PR intern for the WVU Center for Excellence in Disabilities, Melina gave me the opportunity to reconfigure their communication plans into a more organized, strategic format. I made use of the University Relations templates I gathered at their Key Communicators Retreat on campus for this project. Prior to my work revitalizing these plans, they were in a color coded excel format. It was difficult to read and the small spaces did not leave room for elaboration.
This was a blogpost I created for the PRSA Pittsburgh chapter. After attending the PRSA Professional Development day, I provided further tips and notes from the networking portion of the event to share with their readers. PRSA Pittsburgh reached out to the WVU PRSSA chapter regarding this publishing opportunity and I was very excited to assist them. This was my first, blog writing experience as a STCM student and my media writing skills have grown since then.
This was a press release I wrote to promote the grand opening of our Early Childhood Resource Lending Library in Charleston, W. Va. I sent the release to my boss, Melina Danko to distribute to the local Charleston newspapers and radio stations. Prior to this news release I researched various individuals in surrounding counties to invite to this event. I created an excel document to organize the information. The ECRLL has not announced a date for this event, which is why I used TBD.
This was a strategic message planner I created for my Advertising and Public Relations Writing course. This class is a bit unique because we have a service learning client. All of our writing projects benefit these individuals in the development of their product. My teams’ client is Create Your Adventure Club in Grafton, W. Va. This strategic message planner set our goal, objectives, product information and promise in place for our client. We will be meeting with the Create Your Adventure Club leaders to discuss our strategic plan next week.
