New Partnership with MNSU Communication Studies Department
First Presbyterian Church has been looking for different ways to develop more relationships with the community and one way of doing this is through one of the many colleges in the Mankato area. FPC and Minnesota State-Mankato have teamed up beginning this fall to develop a Communication Internship program for current Communica11760269_10207008520599929_4227779061139024803_ntion Studies students. This is to allow a current college student hands on experience of real world communication work. Some tasks that have been included are social media, mass e-mailing, advertising, website work and many more tasks for the future!
This fall we have Ashley Kuhlman as our Communications Intern!   She is a senior studying Communication Studies with a minor in Sociology. Ashley has provided great insight and assisted the Communications Committee along with adding her Communications Studies expertise and advice during this busy fall church season. When Ashley is on break from school she likes to spend her summers working as a camp counselor and also enjoys going on hikes, hanging out with family & making all sorts of crafts. Ashley hopes to work in a church community or with children after she graduates from MNSU this spring.
