Florida A&M University (FAMU) Office of Communications has added to its staff Stephanie Lambert, a former associate editor for the Capital Outlook newspaper, a weekly black-owned publication in Tallahassee, Fla.
“I am pleased happy to have such a talented journalist as part of our staff in the Office of Communications,” said Sharon P. Saunders, executive assistant to the president and FAMU’s chief of communications. “Ms. Lambert will help provide information to the public through our social networks.”
Lambert will manage the university’s social media outlets, which include Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and RattlerWire, a blog page, and develop press releases about university’s events, activities and accomplishments.
Pamela Tolson, FAMU’s director of media relations, echoed Saunders’ sentiment.
“Stephanie is a great addition to the office,” said Tolson. “One of my priorities is to make sure that all of our constituents are knowledgeable about what is occurring here at FAMU. With Stephanie’s work experience, I am confident that Stephanie will help in continuing to make sure this priority is met.”
Lambert, a 2006 FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communications graduate, says she is excited about her new job. She fills the position left vacant by Angel Suri, a 2007 graduate of FAMU with a degree in journalism.
“Florida A&M University has so many great things going on and I am proud to be a part of a team that assists with getting that message to the masses,” said Lambert. “I’m appreciative of this opportunity.”
Lambert, a native of Panama City, Fla., has also worked with the South-Florida Sun Sentinel newspaper and Teen Voices magazine in Boston. She was employed at the Outlook from 2006 to 2010.
