CPCC alumna Crystal Carson, currently works for White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri. As a result, Crystal was able to work on the State of the Union address. She may be seen in this video (she’s the one in the background, wearing the burgundy sweater vest) at the 0:40 mark.
Says Crystal, “I am the assistant to the [White House] director of Communications. I feel so blessed to be here – I’m learning so much but I have to say CPCC (classes and service learning) has given me the foundation to be successful here.”
