Our first meeting of the semester took place on Tuesday, and it was certainly one for the books! From Dean Ed Kelley telling us we provided the largest cake in OU PRSSA history to Naina Wani speaking about her time working for the OKC Thunder, it was a memorable meeting to say the very least.
Students were lined out the door anticipating the start of the meeting, and some of our Exec members eased their anxiety by handing out slices of the delicious, gargantuan cake. Dean Kelley started the meeting off with a bang by informing new folks about what all our organization entails.
After each Exec member introduced himself/herself, Naina Wani stepped up to the plate. She talked about her experiences as a basketball communications coordinator for the OKC Thunder, including tips and tricks on how to make it in the world of Sports PR.
We were incredibly pleased with the turnout, and the students who attended seemed eager to learn and were engaged throughout the entire meeting. Naina Wani may have talked about MVP Russell Westbrook, but we like to think of all the people who attended the meeting as the real MVPs.
Thanks again to Dean Ed Kelley, Naina Wani and all of the students who attended on Tuesday!
