Avaerie Fitzgerald lands media job with the Governor of Ohio

Just a few days before the Spring 2021 Ashland University Commencement, Avaerie Fitzgerald, a senior Digital Media Journalism major and Managing Editor of The Collegian, was notified that she obtained a fantastic job in Columbus, Ohio. She shared a description of this position with A Blog Converged. Avaerie writes that "I accepted a job working as Press Assistant for the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine. I'll be working under the press secretary, Dan Tierney, to work on press releases, press conferences, events, and more. One of the larger responsibilities I have is monitoring the news using a special program and sending those news updates to the Governor." Avaerie adds that "I'm ecstatic for the opportunity to show the skills that I have developed at AU, especially the multimedia skills I have acquired through working on JDM classes and co-curricular media, such as The Collegian, AUTV 20, AU-Live and WRDL." Best of luck to Avaerie!!!
