Hello everyone! My name is Derrick Eskra, and I am the new summer intern for LG-PR Public Relations.  I will be graduating from Eastern Illinois University in the fall of 2014 with a double major in Public Relations and Sport Management. After graduation, I will be looking for a possible sports related career in public relations or marketing. I will be completing a marketing and promotions internship with the EIU athletic department next semester before my eventual graduation.

My time with LG-PR this summer has been fantastic. I provided event support of three major client golf outings.

Finally, I have been hands on with the social media accounts and helping share our brand.
I am thankful for the opportunities Lisa has given me, they have been fundamental in helping me with the learning process of PR and marketing, and I look forward  to what’s to come.
