After interviewing for the position, we were excited to have Hannah Watson join our lineup and become the 2012- 2013 Wells - Bishop Intern for the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts! Hannah is a Junior English Major with a double minor in Communication Studies and Children's Literature at Longwood University with hopes to pursue a career in Public Relations after graduation. She came to the LCVA looking to gain experience in the PR and Marketing field and has worked directly under our PR and Marketing Coordinator Jenna Obermiller Cohill. Outside of the LCVA, Hannah is currently the acting president of Kappa Delta Sorority at Longwood University as well as a proud campus Peer Mentor.
Hannah works to promote all of the events that The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts puts on throughout the year. Doing everything from press releases, radio blurbs, website up keep, and flyers; Hannah has assisted in getting the word out to the local community as well as helping to link the student body of Longwood University with the LCVA.
Being the LCVA's PR and Marketing Intern is one of the most rewarding experiences I could ask for during my time at school. I came into the LCVA with a big background in writing with the ambition to explore the field of PR. It was a huge change from what I was used to studying and I've since learned how to apply my education in English, to the skills I have developed in the marketing field. I couldn't ask for a better environment to explore a career in. Now, thanks to the LCVA and its amazing staff, I have found what a job that I love and want to pursue as a full time career after I graduate!
The Wells-Bishop Internship was established in 2004, by virtue of gifts in honor of Carolyn Wells (Professor Emeritus of Biology, Department of Natural Sciences) and in the memory of Barbara L. Bishop (class of 1960, Art Department faculty, Art Department chair) by family, friends, and Longwood University alumni. The internship program recognizes the significant role that Wells and Bishop played in the establishment of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts.
