New Year and New Officers

As September bring us much needed relief from the South Carolina summer heat, the new officers of the CofC PRSSA are thrilled to be kicking off the fall semester with a Pizza Party next Tuesday Sept. 7 (location TBD). We want everyone to come and hear our new and exciting plans for this school year! But before we do that we thought we should introduce ourselves!

Meet your 2011-2012 Officers!
Keisha Murray
A senior here at the College of Charleston, Murray has been a member of the PRSSA since 2010 and holds a double major in Communication Studies and Political Science. After graduation she hopes to work in the Public Relations industry in Atlanta, Ga. for a few years before attending law school. A fun fact about Murray is that while studying abroad in Morocco she road a camel into the Sahara Desert to watch the sunrise. Now how cool is that!

Vice President
Janae Tanti
Also a senior and member since 2010, Tanti is a communication major with a media studies concentration. From Lakeport, Calif. she hopes to work in sports PR and her dream job would be to do PR for th
e New England Patriots! As a current athletic communications intern here at the college, Tanti manages the men and women's tennis teams. S
he also interned as the executive editor for IEM Study Abroad: Valencia (Spain) this past
summer where she oversaw the writing of the student handbook. In the spring, she will be interning with the college again, as well as with A Charleston Bride Wedding Planning as their social media intern.

Director of Internal Communications
Audrey Horne

Horne has been an active member in the organization since the spring of 2010. Originally from
North Carolina, this senior corporate communication major swapped the
mountains for the beach and doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon! She hopes to stay in Charleston after graduation and start a career in public relations and marketing. Although she aspires to one day open her own pr firm, she would love to continue working for one of the local agencies or in the marketing/communications department for a larger corporation.

Mikayla Carr
Director of Public Relations
Carr is also a senior with a major in Communication Studies and a Minor in Psychology. A member since 2010 she enjoys wake-boarding, and any other water activities. This past summer she interned here in Charleston for JDA frontline where she worked on campaigns for the USO, TV Watch, and the American Diabetes Association. After finishing here at CofC she plans to attend graduate school and continue to study communications and public relations before finding a job in the non-profit sector of PR.

We hope to see ya'll next Tuesday. Come with any ideas you may have for what we can do to help the rest of you get the most out of your PRSSA experience.
