September 15th #PRStudchat Announcement

We’re gearing up for our September 15th #PRStudChat session this week with a great line up of young PR pro panelists who will discuss their “Transition from PR Student to PR Professional.”  Our student community is excited to get some new insight on what it’s really like in the PR world and our PR pros are there to share their knowledge and experiences too.

This #PRStudChat session would not be complete without a PR student joining us; to ask the questions, guide the discussion and join in the conversations.  It’s my pleasure to introduce our special guest and PR student moderator….. Ashley Funderburk (@amfunderburk1).

For those of you who don’t know Ashley, she is a student at Western Carolina University where she majors in public relations and journalism.  Ashley is very active in PRSSA as the chapter’s vice president and she is the firm director at Catamount Communications (CatCom), the student-run PR firm on campus. Ashley is expected to graduate from WCU in the summer 2011.

With respect to Twitter chats and learning opportunities, Ashley said, “Getting involved with Twitter chats has helped me connect with PR students across the world, and I am so glad I found out about them. #PRStudChat was one of the first chats I participated in and I recommend it to any PR student or pro!”

We feel this discussion will be another excellent opportunity for the PR and marketing community to help students learn more about real world PR.  Please join us on September 15th at 8:30 p.m. for another dynamic session.  We look forward to “seeing” you then!
