Maura Fenske is a current sophomore Public Relations major at Waynesburg University. Originally from Marietta, Ohio, she came to Waynesburg with the intent to make her mark here, and only two years into her college career, she has left quite the impression. Currently, Maura is the Executive Editor of the Mad Anthony Yearbook, an account executive for the student-run firm, Red Brick Communications. She recently became the Social Media Coordinator for Waynesburg University’s Chapter of PRSSA. She claims that her favorite social media platform would have to be Twitter; it is the way she finds out about anything happening in the news, and what is going on with the people in her life. Maura’s dream job is to be a Communications Director for a professional sports team someday. Her interests are not limited to just hockey, football and baseball, she also has passion for soccer, basketball and other athletics.
Why do you love PRSSA?
It gives me the opportunity to learn more about the Public Relations field from underclassmen and professionals that we bring into speak.
What is your favorite PRSSA memory thus far?
Probably PR Week last year. It was crazy but we learned from a lot of really great professionals.
What do you hope to get out of PRSSA this academic year?
I m excited to go to National Conference with my peers to network with professionals and travel to a city that I have never been to!
Maura is super enthusiastic and excited for this upcoming year, to describe her experience so far, and to describe how she will look at the rest of her time here at Waynesburg, she chose an anonymous quote: “You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
