I am Mary Grace Brantley, one of Abshire Public Relations summer interns from the University of Georgia. I am a public relations major and will be a senior this coming fall. At the University of Georgia, I work for The Red & Black, the student media group on campus as an account executive, working with local businesses to sell ads for the newspaper, website, and other special projects put on by The Red & Black. I also work with UGA Miracle, a campus philanthropic organization that raises money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Last year, I served as an assistant social media chair for the organization and will be continuing the role during the upcoming year. In Athens, you can find me in Sanford Stadium cheering on the dawgs or trying out a new restaurant in downtown.
Originally from Savannah, I was so excited when I got the opportunity to come back for the summer. Savannah is one of my favorite cities and working with Jennifer Abshire over the past month has been such a great experience. I have enjoyed learning the ins and outs of PR, and I look forward to what the rest of the summer will bring!
