EWC Sophomore Speaker at Convention
September 27, 2002
(Torrington, WY, September 27, 2002) Eastern Wyoming College sophomore, Amy Geringer, was asked to speak about advertising at the Wyoming Student Press Association State Convention to be held in Casper, October 7th, 2002. The WSPA wanted a recent graduate who is still working in professional journalism to speak and Geringer was a natural choice.
Geringer, a 2001 graduate of Wheatland High, got her start in journalism as a high school junior reporting for the school newspaper the Bulldogs Bark, and becoming the editor the next year. She has been employed by Wyoming Newspaper's Incorporated, working for the Platte County Record Times, Guernsey Gazette, Torrington Telegram and just finished a summer job as editor with the Business Farmer. She is working in sales for the Telegram at the moment.
Studying communications, Geringer, will transfer later to the University of Wyoming to major in Journalism with an emphasis on advertising. Since she has written for newspapers, and has done composition and editing, the next step is to learn ad designing. Her hope is to one day be part of a team that does a huge ad campaign for a big name-brand company.
Eastern Wyoming College English Instructor, Wayne Deahl, said this about Geringer, ? As Amy?s advisor, it has been my pleasure to work with her. Amy is the sort of student advisors look for, as she is motivated, capable, and a hard-worker. I sincerely congratulate her on this honor and know that she will represent herself and EWC very well?.
