Full Steam Ahead for Summer!
Summer has arrived in Austin, and we have some exciting news to share!
First off, congrats to our interns, Katia Banic and Karli Flores, who have graduated from the University of Texas at Austin–we couldn’t be prouder!
Katia will be staying with KOPR until early July, when she departs for a long planned trip to Croatia to visit family.
Two new interns will also be working with us this summer: Amanda Lewis and Carson Yarbrough. Amanda attends the University of Georgia, and Carson attends UT where she is pursuing a double major in Public Relations and Corporate Communications Studies.
KOPR is delighted to welcome new account executive Isobel Elder. She comes to us with a degree in communications and in-depth experience in both non-profit PR and education. A resident of the Hyde Park neighborhood, Isobel enjoys checking out new restaurants with her husband and taking the two family dogs on walks near their home.
It’s been a busy spring, with Central Market’s Passport Mexico just completed, and as the popular emporium’s “A Cut Above” grilling festival gets under way. The fun doesn’t stop there, as Central Market celebrates Beer Fest starting in mid-June. Trust us, it’s a mouthwatering couple of months!
St. David’s Foundation is finishing up their Toast of the Town celebrations to raise funds for the St. David’s Neal Kocurek Scholarship Fund, which helps area students to pursue careers in healthcare. Look for more news later this summer on these deserving and talented graduates.
Hope to see you all out and about this summer!
Kristy, Isobel, Katia, Amanda and Carson
