University of Colorado (Boulder) AWC Co-President Brittany Moore and Washington State University AWC President Tallie Mattson were both awarded Barbara Ericksen scholarships to attend the 2011s AWC Professional Conference.
Moore is a double degree (Broadcast Journalism and Business Administration) senior with a distinguished resume who is planning a career in broadcast journalism following her graduation in 2013. She is perhaps best known for organizing a very successful networking trip to Los Angeles for eight student members of AWC in January 2011.
A Public Relations major, chapter Vice President Mattson stepped up to assume presidential responsibilities a year ahead of schedule when the chapter needed her leadership. Mattson rallied the organization’s officers, developed a strategic plan and guided the chapter through its annual fundraising event, all leading to a successful start of the current year’s activities. Mattson plans a career in public relations in Vancouver, Washington following her graduation in May, 2012.
