Student Jenalee Alexander does it all:
Student organizations to studying abroad
From a small town to a big university, Jenalee Alexander has come a long way and has no intentions of slowing down any time soon. Her passion for public relations first began in 2007 when she started her duties as the "country girl" for Bluebell Creameries in her hometown of Brenham, Texas. In this position, she served as a spokeswoman for the company giving tours of the facilities and traveling on media tours to various cities in the south.
Student Caitlin Giddens Gains Experience at Local Magazine
Caitlin Giddens, a junior from Tyler, is a News Editorial student. Giddens is heavily involved with all things journalism.
She is the president of Baylor's chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the chapter correspondent for her sorority. She has worked for BSCENE Magazine, Round Up, The Baylor Lariat and most recently, Wacoan magazine.
Student Brenna Middleton trumpets her support of Baylor sports
As the Baylor Line fanfare begins to play at the end of Baylor basketball games, and hands forming bear claws begin to rise in the air, junior Brenna Middleton raises her trumpet and joins the chorus of "That Good Old Baylor Line" with the Baylor Courtside Players. No matter how many times she's had to play it, Middleton said she never gets tired of it.
"Playing the school song never gets old," Middleton said. "I love the words and love watching everyone, especially the athletes, sing along after games."
Middleton is in her third year as a trumpet player for the Baylor Golden Wave Marching Band, and she also performs with the Courtside Players during basketball season. But away from the basketball court and the football field, Middleton is a public relations major with a minor in corporate communication working toward a career in healthcare PR.
Combining passion for video and helping others
With a big heart and a love for creating and editing video, Trevor Allison, a senior from Floyds Knobs, Ind., designed a short documentary video to promote awareness for a Fredericksburg educational program, Stonewall Head Start.
Head Start is a national preschool program that accepts children from ages 3 to 5 years old from families who are below a certain income level.
Baylor Journalism students Cate Westenhover & Diamond Richardson excel on the track & in the classroom
Cate Westenhover and Diamond Richardson have a lot of things in common. They're both journalism majors, they both have GPA's that are nearly perfect and they're both exceptional athletes on the track and field team. They have one other interesting thing in common: neither of them thought they would ever choose Baylor.
Cate, a native of Austin, thought she would run for the University of Texas.
"The first time I met Coach Harbor, I turned him down," said Westenhover. I didn't think I wanted to come to Baylor. He gave me another call and invited me on the visit and I started to change my mind."
Richardson has a similar story.
