Ashland University Class of 2012 alumna, Angelique Cunningham, is now a part of the Cleveland Cavaliers. When she attended the MAC Career Fair at Quicken Loans arena, alongside Dr. Theodore Avtgis, she had no idea that a meeting would land her a job with one of the big three professional sports teams in Cleveland. The Cavs spared no expense as Cunningham had the opportunity to return to a game with her family and sat in 3rd row courtside seats. One day later she was offered a position with the Cavs as an account executive for inside sales.
Angelique graduated from Ashland in 2012 with a double major in Public Relations and Electronic Media Production.
“As I reflect back on my personal, professional, and academic growth I attribute much of my success to my time spent at Ashland University,” said Cunningham.
She also credited the strong Department of Communication Studies at Ashland University, guided by Dr. Avtgis.
“The communication program built a strong platform for me that not only promoted the value in majoring in communication studies but afforded me the skill-sets necessary to handle communication studies at the master’s level.”
Following her graduation from Ashland Univeristy, she pursued a master of arts in communication at The University of Akron and will be graduating in May.
“I am a proud alumna of Ashland University and as a communication major there are absolutely no limitations what you can do.”
Congratulations, Angelique, on the start of your new career. Forever you belong to Ashland University and Ashland University belongs to you.
