GodwinGroup is excited to announce the beginning of Launchpad! It is a summer internship program offering 10 weeks of real #AgencyLife. Launchpad provides a taste of how an advertising agency operates, plus practical experience in an area of interest. Our interns will be involved in making decisions regarding advertising campaigns, supporting client planning, giving presentations, and gaining real-world experience in advertising procedures. We welcome three promising individuals to Launchpad this summer: Miller Hollingsworth, Daniel Jackson and Nick Johnson.
Miller M. Hollingsworth – PR Intern
Miller comes to Godwin from Ole Miss, where she graduated May 2015. She interned at the Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies where she wrote articles and press releases — and also wrote for Hottytoddy.com, a site for everything Oxford and Ole Miss. And Miller is certainly well rounded, as she was once in charge of ride operations for Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
Miller has a B.S. and majored in Integrated Marketing Communications with minors in English and Business, and an emphasis in Public Relations. She was on both the Chancellor’s and Dean’s Honor Rolls, a member of Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society and a Provost Scholar.
Daniel Jackson – Graphic Intern
If you need a project done utilizing Dreamweaver, Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator, Daniel is your go-to guy. He had four pieces accepted for the 2015 MSU Juried Student Show and won the Dean’s Student Affairs Purchase Prize. Daniel also picked up a Silver Award as well as two Bronzes at the 2015 AIGA Southern Student Graphic Design Show.
Daniel holds an Associate’s degree from Hinds Community College, and is expected to obtain a BFA in Graphic Design in May 2016 from Mississippi State University.
Nick Johnson – Brand Management Intern
Nick graduated in May 2015 from The University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor of Science Degree in International Business. He accomplished quite a bit during his time at USM — Nick was on both the Dean’s and President’s lists, earned the 2013–2014 Most Outstanding Scholar Athlete Award and recognition from the Conference-USA not just once, but three times. He has volunteered at the DuBard School, Habitat for Humanity and worked with kids at USM’s baseball camps/clinics teaching the fundamentals of baseball.
Speaking of baseball, he was a relief pitcher for the Golden Eagles, with a 4-0 record and a 2.93 earned run average in 12 appearances over 27 2/3 innings during the 2015 season — all while maintaining a 4.0 in his college studies.
Nick will begin his MBA this August.
