Reconnecting with Loyalist PR alumni

A huge thank you to the amazing Post-Grad Public Relations grads who took part in today's Loyalist PR Alumni Panel here at Loyalist College.

Specifically, we'd like to thank: James Lewis (Nelson Education Canada, Toronto), Alex Sancton (World Vision Canada, Mississauga), Jeff Lauritsen (Quinte Waste Solutions), Ashley MacCormack (Canadian Cancer Society, Ottawa), Ashley Matheson (Researcher, Loyalist College), Melanie Barrett (Albert College, Belleville) and Tracey Reid (Graphic Designer, Loyalist College).

The candid (and often humorous) discussion answered Loyalist PR students' questions honestly, while offering a great reality check on what is taking place right now in the PR/communications industry in general.

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules to join us today for the panel (and lunch!).

We can't wait to see where your careers lead you next!
