By Yashita Thota

The MS in Professional Writing (MSPW) hosted a joyful 10th anniversary celebration with alumni, students, and faculty this Spring. The heartwarming online event included a panel of featured alumni in exciting leadership roles across five industries.

Many thanks to panelists Laila E. Dreidame, Maggie McGwin, Katie Bennett, Shanna Seesz, and Christinne Govereau for sharing their expertise and career advice– along with a few key MSPW memories. The conversation was inspiring and insightful.
