“Miss Protocol,” as she is known around campus, has over 31 years of experience as a producer, special events and protocol management expert in entertainment and higher education. Before returning to work for her beloved alma mater, Carol spent 10 years working with nationally syndicated television shows PM Magazine, Laverne and Shirley and the Home Box Office (HBO) network in Los Angeles. She is the co-author of Thurgood Marshall College Fund’s publication, “8 Winning Steps To Creating A Successful Special Event” and was also trained at The Protocol School of Washington. Carol has a unique role at PVAMU, as she works for both the Offices of the President and Marketing and Communications. She works directly with the National Alumni Association and serves as the primary liaison for the National Alumni Association, coordinates alumni gatherings, class reunions and presidential events and fundraisers.
If you aren’t careful, Edie will rub off on you. She’s friendly, funny, always smiling and has a “can do” attitude that can’t be ignored. With 20 years of experience in database system management, she’s the perfect person to manage the university’s alumni database. Between that database and her knowledge, she probably can name or at least recognize the names of PVAMU’s 64,000 graduates. Challenge her and she will do it with a smile. Those skills are used daily while she assists with the outreach to our alumni through awareness gatherings, events, class reunions and activities.
Candace joined the Office of Marketing and Communications in 2012, bringing with her a host of ideas and a slight obsession with all things media. She remembers using magazine layouts as wallpaper, playing loud music and creating short stories. A native of Oklahoma City, by way of Dallas, Candace holds an MBA in Media Management from Metropolitan College of New York and earned both her bachelor’s and master’s (one is communications and one in community development) from PVAMU. When she is not planning alumni gatherings, writing for social media or updating the website, you will find her looking for the latest way to spread the good news of PVAMU to alumni audiences.
