Meet our new intern, Samantha!
Knight Eady is thrilled to welcome Samantha Sanders as our Fall 2015 intern. She will spend her time in the office this semester helping the marketing and communications team in preparation for our upcoming events. Check out a little more about Samantha below!
Hello! I am Samantha Sanders, and I am the fall public relations and marketing intern with Knight Eady Sports Group. I am currently a senior at the University of Alabama, majoring in public relations and minoring in sociology. As a former college student-athlete and lover of all sports, an internship opportunity with Knight Eady was a perfect match. Knight Eady’s dedication to providing platforms for fans, athletes and sports enthusiasts, and their motivation to inspire individuals to reach beyond their potential is why I chose to apply for the internship position.
Overall, I hope to learn more about the marketing concepts and advertising strategy within Knight Eady. I also would like to gain experience in planning sporting events, accessing sponsorships and creating new partnerships both locally and nationally. Having a hands-on role in the day-to-day operations will help me develop a greater understanding of Knight Eady and the sports marketing community.
It’s a huge honor to work with Knight Eady and see the impact they have not only had in Alabama, but nationally as well. Being able to research and create marketing/public relations approaches for an organization with such far-reaching influence will allow me to enhance what I’ve learned in through classes and internships and apply my skills to the real world.
That’s just a little about me! Thanks for reading!
