Public Relations Experience, September 2012- current: The Coalition of Alabama Students for the Environment

This entry showcases  a selection of press coverage coordinated by myself in my role as Public Relations Director for the Coalition of Alabama Students for the Environment (CASE), a statewide student coalition uniting 8 Alabama Universities for the increased economic and ecological sustainability of the state of Alabama.

All press advisories/releases were written by myself and then distributed to a 250+ register of local, state, and regional paper and digital news outlets.

Hyperlinks in this document will take you to the original copy of each press advisory/release and to actual press coverage on outside sites.
