Senior Capstone Project: Ready, Set to Bloom! Campaign


Students majoring in Journalism and Media Studies must complete a final professional quality Senior Capstone project.

The purpose of the project is to showcase what a student learned in their Journalism and Media Studies courses.

It must be the student’s most advanced work, so the class is taken after the completion of all other major requirements

My project was a strategic communication awareness campaign for the McMinnville Education Foundation.

The nonprofit provides funding for enriching educational activities and experiences beyond what the school district’s budget allows. but many people do not know that.


The purpose of this project was to showcase what I learned in my Journalism and Media Studies courses.


The goal of the Ready, Set, Bloom! campaign was to bring awareness of what MEF does and make measurable progress towards making the organization a household name.
