Amber Lester Kennedy is a 2006 graduate of Christopher Newport University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in English with a Journalism Concentration with a minor in Art History. She spent seven years as a journalist, working as a reporter and copy editor in newsrooms in Harrisonburg, Staunton and Williamsburg.

At the end of this month, she will begin a new position as a public relations counselor at The Meridian Group, an advertising agency in Virginia Beach handling accounts for the Chrysler Museum of Art, Stihl, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
First year students, remember that you should aim to complete about 15 hours this semester, so that you're on track and not overwhelmed next semester. Stop by the PLP Office or send Steph an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are struggling or just want to chat about community engagement!
