As a new Strategic Communication major, my experience has been full of learning. I find myself enjoying the major and wishing that I had gotten more involved in public relations sooner. Which is why I was surprised when I saw an article by Valerie Honeycutt Spears in the Lexington Herald Ledger about second graders at Arlington Elementary practicing the art of public relations.
School teachers tasked their second grade students with developing their own PR campaign to promote school rules. Students came up with songs and posters to help promote school rules.
The posters contained messages that included, “stay in your personal space”, “don’t push anyone” and “keep hands to yourself.” The public relations campaign to promote following the rules and good behavior will hopefully encourage students to follow the rules. So whether you are a senior in college or a second grader, the basics of public relations help build a foundation for a career.
