We’re growing and proud to announce another new team member — Tara Cegla. Tara joins Bellmont Partners as a recent graduate from UW-Eau Claire with a Bachelors of Arts in mass communication and an emphasis in public relations. She brings valuable experience from her recent internship at the Minnesota State Fair, and her active campus life.
Tara worked as the PR Intern for the Minnesota State Fair this summer, where she gained experience in writing news releases, coordinating interviews, creating the 2011 media kit and managing social media. At UW-Eau Claire, Tara began as Copy Editor, and later, Section Editor for her campus newspaper, The Spectator. Tara’s, first PR role in college was when she helped plan one of Eau Claire’s largest events, the Eau Claire Jazz Festival. She also served as Public Relations Manager for UW-Eau Claire’s student radio station, WUEC 89.7 FM, and was a Public Relations Director for UW-Eau Claire’s American Marketing Association chapter.
“I’m excited to be back in the Twin Cities, where I grew up,” Tara said. “I’m ready to put my skills to work for Bellmont Partners and their clients.” To find out more about her, you can follow her on Twitter (@ceglatk). We’re excited to have Tara on board!
