As we approach graduation, we cannot believe our time at K-State is coming to an end! We know that we are all the more prepared for what comes next thanks to the lessons we have learned both in our time working and being involved with the School of Leadership Studies.

As we reflect over our time as PR student coordinators, we would like to share a bit about what we’ve learned:

  1. We learned never worry about coming into work hungry, as someone has always brought a snack to share in the meeting place!
  2. We learned that you can never, EVER, spell check too many times!
  3. On a more serious note, we learned to take a team of three differently skilled individuals and harness our strengths to make the best PR team possible. Bryant brought skills in media, Emily in planning our events and social media, and Maureen in writing, and together we worked to produce a new website, several editions of “the Loop,” celebratory events such as “Spirit of Leadership” and “Celebrating Service and Leadership” and various promotional materials that helped tell the School of Leadership Studies story.

As we transition from students to alumni, we look forward to giving feedback to the new PR coordinators to help them improve on how the School connects with students and alumni – and we encourage you to do the same. The beautiful thing about the School of Leadership Studies is that everyone who enters these doors has a story to tell. This group of people, from faculty to students to alumni and friends makes an impact in so many ways across our world. We all benefit from hearing these stories, and as PR coordinators, we have enjoyed sharing them with you. We hope you will join us in staying connected with the School of Leadership Studies and reflect on what stories you want to hear!

Please contact slsinfo@k-state.edu (yes, we were serious when we said we wanted your feedback!) to let us know what stories connected with you. We hope to continue growing this newsletter into a piece that keeps alumni connected and invested in what the School is doing. Our new PR coordinators cannot wait to learn what you would like to hear from Leadership Studies!
