Athens Academy was pleased to welcome public relations expert Suzanne Rutledge to campus as part of the new Spartan Speaker Series. Ms. Rutledge spoke to Upper School students on Tuesday, January 24, in the Chambers Center.
Ms. Rutledge shared her background as a graduate of the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia, where she studied broadcast journalism. After taking a job with an ABC affiliate news station in Virginia, she decided to shift her focus to public relations in order to tell what she calls “the best stories in the world.”
In addition to her career experience, Ms. Rutledge also shared stories from her family’s travels around the world in recent years. She encouraged students to be organized but to also expect and embrace change.
