Alumni Strike: Constance Rush

It's no surprise that another Florida A&M University graduate has hit it big.

Constance Rush, a St. Louis native, was announced the winner of the Taylor Public Relations' Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Public Relations Challenge open to HBCU seniors across the country.

Rush won a full time position as an assistant account executive at Taylor, the leader in lifestyle and sports public relations, in its New York office.

"Building diversity in our industry is a key initiative for Taylor," said Tony Signore, CEO and managing partner for Taylor. "We are thrilled to welcome this exceptional individual 00to the Taylor family. Constance embodies Taylor's core values and has demonstrated throughout this challenge the qualities needed to become a successful public relations professional."

Students were nominated by faculty and administrators at their respective colleges based on a structured set of criteria. The chosen participants were tasked with creating and implementing a three-month campaign to generate positive awareness of the exceptional efforts of local Boys & Girls Club volunteers.

In addition to the position offered to Rush, Taylor awarded the communications program at FAMU $5,000 for an undergraduate scholarship in her name.

Bravo Constance!
