Two Watkinsville Students Selected as Yarbrough-Grady Interns
Undergrads will be working with Grady leadership and a leading public relations and marketing agency, Jackson Spalding.
Two Watkinsville students were recently selected as Yarbrough-Grady interns by the Grady College at the University of Georgia. Paula Bryant and Coral Frederick will be working with Grady leadership and a leading public relations and marketing agency, Jackson Spalding, during fall semester 2012.
While working at Jackson Spalding's Athens office the interns will receive mentorship from industry professions while fine-tuning their skills. The interns will be working in a learning lab environment.
“The opportunity to work at an established communications firm provides our students with a real world translation of the disciplines being taught every day in the classroom,” stated Grady College Dean Cully Clark in a press release. “We owe a lot of thanks to Dick Yarbrough for partnering with us on this opportunity. He understands how relevant work experience can enhance the value of an education here.”
Bryant is a public relations and women's studies major at UGA. She received the William I. Ray, Jr. Scholarship and Public Relations Student Society of America's Spirit of PRSSA award. Bryant has held internships with Ketchum South and The Reynolds Group in Atlanta and she is set to graduate in December.
Frederick is studying mass media arts and women's studies at Grady College. Frederick volunteers for Take Back the Night and has worked as a producer and cinematographer at Grady College Student Film.
