Dateline: April 2, 2019
Athens State art student, Rachel Jackson, will be participating in the Disney College Program this fall. Thousands of college students from across the country apply for the program each year. Those who are selected are given the opportunity to attend exclusive networking events, participate in career development classes, and build skills that will help them further their careers. The professional development opportunities offered through the program will help prepare Rachel for her dream career as a graphic design artist.
Being selected for this internship will add to Rachel’s already impressive resume. In 2018 she was awarded the WID-TVC Scholarship from the Women in Defense Tennessee Valley Chapter and won Gold and Silver Addy Awards for her artwork from the American Advertising Association.
