Talk about a PR superstar! Kate Pretty is a sophomore in the Public Relations program and just switched into the program this past semester. After taking PR 240 (Public Relations Principle) in the spring, Kate made the jump from Marketing to PR because she did so well in the class and loved coming to the class. “I wasn’t super committed to marketing. I was just in it because I knew I wanted to be in business. Once I took PR 240 with Dr. Bishop, I knew that Public Relations is where I wanted to be.”
After making the switch, Kate joined PRSSA and fell in love. She is part of the Internal Relations team in PRSSA. “My favorite part of PRSSA is the great people in it. It’s fun to go to because the people around me make it fun,” said Kate.
Kate moved up to Ferris from Midland, MI about a year ago to play volleyball for Ferris. When she graduates in 2016, she hopes to work with Sports PR but if not she would like to work at a PR agency or in the entertainment industry.
Other than being involved in PRSSA, Kate has been playing for the varsity volleyball team for two years.
