Bethany College is introducing Corinne Grabow as this month’s student spotlight! Corinne is a senior communications student from Morgantown, W.Va. Outside of the classroom, she is a sister of Phi Mu and a member of the Bethany College women’s soccer team.
Corinne completed an internship with Mountaineer Technology Consulting LLC in her hometown of Morgantown, W.Va. “There, I was in charge of everything from social media to digital marketing,” says Corinne. “I got the opportunity to be creative, as well as learn a lot of new things. I got to work with different clients and come up with social media strategies that would work best for their business.”
