We just heard from alum Kayla Wilson ('12), who's counting the days until her law school commencement. Kayla will graduate from Michigan State School of Law in May.
She writes, "I hope you and all of the BizComm professors are well. I am working at Legal Aid in Michigan, but I also spent last semester teaching high school journalism students about the First Amendment as a student in one of the clinics Michigan State offers. It was a really good experience for me and I enjoyed teaching. The students had a lot of questions about speech specifically, because of their interest in social media."
Love to hear that our alums are thriving in such a wide variety of fields!
