Alumni Panel Shares Wisdom with Chapter By: Tyler Fiesel

On Tuesday Jan. 12, members of the Illinois State University Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America got the chance to hear from ISU alumni on the topic of the “real world” and also had time to ask a few questions of their own. The alumni panel consisted of: Cassidy Obis, a May 2015 graduate of the public relations program and current account coordinator for Fishman PR. As a sophomore transfer, Obis joined ISU PRSSA, served as the Chapter’s blog chair junior year, and served as 2014-2015 Chapter president. Additionally, Obis held five undergraduate internships with the Normal CornBelters, Special Olympics Illinois, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, the School of Communication Promotion and Development team, and with the COUNTRY Financial public affairs and media relations department. Stephanie Dequenne, the Director of Alumni Relations at Illinois State University and instructor in the ISU School of Communication. She earned a bachelor’s degree in 2004, and a master’s degree in 2015, both from ISU. Dequenne advises the Student Alumni Council and coordinates programs for future and young alumni. Previously, Dequenne worked with the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
