I did a good job - added some new promotion channels on a creative whim. Later that semester I was given the opportunity to be a part of President Gerald Ford's campus visit. Probably I would not have been asked if I had not done an enthusiastic job for the alumnae, who turned out to be a best selling author and makes the NY Times list regularly.
