PR Campaigns Class in Finals of Competition

Posted 5-4-2015 by Brian Horton

Students in Section 002 of Dr. Shelley Wigley’s PR Campaigns class have made it to the finals of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Recruitment Challenge through EdVenture Partners and will represent UT Arlington in Houston on May 15. Students were challenged to become ambassadors and advocates for employment in the fuel and petrochemical industries. Students created an on-campus “Petrol Party” where they educated UT-Arlington students on the importance of petrochemicals in everyday life and discussed job opportunities in the fuel and petrochemical fields. The event featured free food, games, a photo booth and lots of social media chatter using the hashtag #comefuelyourself.
