Academy students will learn first hand about public relations and have the opportunity to complete exclusive internship hours at LaRue PR. Students will be exposed to brand development and marketing, multi-faceted publicity campaigns, media outreach, social media marketing, and celebrity product placement. This tremendous opportunity will allow students to gain valuable knowledge, skills, and experiences in the public relations field that cannot be duplicated in a traditional classroom.
