Kelly Reed (’16) is a Senior at Indiana Wesleyan University studying Strategic Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. She has two brothers, one of which will be attending IWU as a freshman this fall. Kelly has a passion for storytelling and envisions herself as a Communications Director of a nonprofit organization when she graduates.
During her time at IWU, she has held many roles, which she believes, have gotten her closer to her dream job. Besides socializing with friends, Kelly’s favorite way to spend time at school is working with PRSSA [Public Relations Student Society of America]. She was last year’s PR Director and this year’s President.
Holding leadership roles in PRSSA, the school newspaper, The Sojourn, and the Alumni Office have built her experiences and given her great opportunities outside of school. This summer, Kelly will be living in North Carolina working as an intern in the Communication Office of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. She is thrilled and eager to be immersed in Christian nonprofit communication.
Kelly’s time at the Alumni Office has opened her eyes to the possibilities and power of storytelling. She is ready to take what she learns at her internship this summer and apply it to her communication efforts next year.
