Internship Spotlight: Bethany Meadows Interns at The Ohio State Reformatory

Bethany Meadows recently completed an internship with The Ohio State Reformatory as the Public Relations Intern. At her internship, Meadows managed the social media platforms, which included analyzing current data on the social media platforms and creating daily posts and new content for their pages.

Throughout her internship, Meadows says she learned how to overcome trails and tribulations. She also states how taking the class Introduction to Public Relations helped her tremendously with her daily tasks and knowing how to compose certain social media posts.

Meadows is an English Major with a Creative Writing and Public Relations Minor.

 A favorite quote of Meadows that comes from the movie Shawshank Redemption, which was filmed at The Ohio State Reformatory is, "Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."
