Army Strong Brand Ambassador program selects SRU student
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Gretchen Muri, a Slippery Rock University marketing major from Murrysville, has been selected as an Army Strong Brand Ambassador Intern, giving her the chance to gain professional work experience and college credit while engaging students.
"Ambassadors will work to create brand awareness at pre-existing events such as Greek life parties, organization meetings and sporting events. The ambassadors will learn all aspects of social media networking through the program's Facebook page," said Staci Cretu, chief of advertising and public affairs at the U.S. Army Harrisburg Recruiting Battalion.
Muri is one of eight marketing, advertising and business undergraduate students awarded similar internships at Pennsylvania universities. The paid internships are designed to introduce young people to a variety of U.S. Army education programs and related careers while developing future leaders.
The Army Strong Brand Ambassador program was created to provide skills training while providing college internship credits. The program will assist in educating college students about U.S. Army programs.
"This internship will further my education in marketing and advertising by promoting a well-respected organization such as the U.S. Army," Muri said.
