Meet the 2019-2020 Fellows!

As the 2018-2019 academic year comes to a close, it is with pride and excitement that this year’s Benjamin Family Social Media Fellows pass the torch along to a new group. This year’s applicant pool was full of so many bright, hardworking, and talented students. It was incredibly hard to choose just five of them, but we think we did a pretty good job!

This year, our team of fellows has accomplished so many of our goals, bringing the PCSB’s social media platforms to new heights. From new campaigns, to paid advertising, this team was always looking to try something new and interesting. We are confident that next year’s team will continue to do the exact same.

It is with great honor that Madeline, Jack, Phuong, Skylar, and I would like to officially hand over the reins to our 2019-2020 Benjamin Family Social Media Fellows!
