The students whose work was selected were Tara Sanders, Alexa Shockley, Jacob Cordle, Asha Thomas, Mikayla McCray, Austin Faris, Ben McCloskey and Laura Hay. The PSAs were aired on WEHC 90.7.

“Knowing my class project is actually for a client is an exciting opportunity because it’s like a glimpse into what the world of work or even an internship would look like,” said Shockley. =
