We are very proud of Erin and all of our students. Honestly, we do have a wonderful group of quite intelligent – and very hilarious, I might add – students each and every semester. That’s why I truly love my job. The students make it all worthwhile.
…our grads are all over the world practicing in large firms, and small… they are in gov’t, industry, nonprofits and more…
Read about Erin’s great news in her blog: Erin Caldwell’s PRblog » Miss Caldwell Goes to Washington. Lest we forget, we have other successful students, too.
Erin is joining a long list of Auburn grads inside the beltway. Paige Bagby is also headed to Washington. They called and recurited Paige back to her old internship stomping grounds at a lobbying firm in D.C. Others practicing PR in Washington? Maggie Landry is there with the McGinn Group – and she’s blogging. On Capitol Hill, Shea Snider is Congressman Mike Rogers’ Press Secretary.
Erin isn’t the first to join Edelman, either. Lauren Schuler works for Edelman, in Atlanta. Many others are – and have been – with the firm, too. The Atlanta office is doing quite well. Just last year, the Edelman Atlanta office received “Agency of the Year” honors from the IABC.
Amy Lee is in New York working with the Financial Times and Jessica Stephens is with Publicis in Atlanta. Publicis was recently announced as AdWeek’s US Media Agency of the Year.
Some day I should do one long post with examples of all the students we have out there, coast to coast – and overseas. They really are everywhere. I feel kinda bad just mentioning these students because there are so many out there – and here on campus – doing great things each and every day.
So, forgive my lil’ bit of self-congratulatory flag waving for our students. We love them. They make us proud every day. All of them.
