Our very own, Chesney Garnos, was awarded the University of South Dakota’s 30 Under 30 award. Chesney graduated in 2017 Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and in 2021 with a Masters in Communication Studies. As the Strategic Communications Manager at The Event Company, Chesney is responsible for amplifying the voice and brand of our company and their clients through media relations, social media marketing, and more. Chesney says she gained these skills and so much more during her time at USD. “I studied political science and social media marketing at USD, where I gained strong writing skills, marketing skills, and amazing mentorship that would forever impact my future. This mentorship led me to start my own nonprofit by my senior year at the University called Break the Chains.” She touches more on her favorite USD mentors in this short clip that you can watch here!
