In the Mix…Recognition for a “Remarkable Woman”

February 17, 2012

With a bit of persistence – backed by a powerful and inspiring personal story of perseverance – the LCWA Everest College team generated coverage in last Sunday’s Chicago Tribune “Remarkable Woman” for graduate Pamela Jackson. We worked with reporter Barbara Mahany for more than a year to gain interest in Pamela’s story of courage growing up on the city’s toughest streets, and her determination to overcome extraordinary obstacles to achieve her academic and professional goals. Outlined in a Q&A format, the article provided Pamela with a platform to share her personal hopes, lessons, mistakes and an inspiring story of success with Chicagoland readers.
