I’m delighted to announce that Elizabeth Mays has been named to the new position of assistant director at the Reynolds Center. She comes to us from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, home to Reynolds. At Reynolds, Mays will take charge of marketing activities and digital initiatives.
Known as Liz, Mays began her career as a magazine writer and editor and now applies that editorial judgment across digital and social communications platforms in Web marketing endeavors. She has done work for companies including tourism destination marketing company Madden Media, content marketing firm McMurry, luxury lifestyle publisher Media That Deelivers and Morris Visitor Publications among others and has also been a small business owner and entrepreneur.
For the past four and a half years, Mays served as Outreach Director at Cronkite, coordinating Web marketing and SEO projects, dean’s initiatives and outreach, and entrepreneurial endeavors including the school’s annual Scripps Howard Journalism Entrepreneurship Institute.
Mays is an alumna of the Cronkite School’s Mid-Career Master’s program with an M.M.C. focusing on Digital Media Entrepreneurship. She is passionate about digital publishing and enjoys traveling and running in her spare time. You can follow Mays on Twitter @theeditress.
Meanwhile, Cassandra Nicholson, who most recently has served as senior coordinator of Reynolds programs, will take Mays’ previous position at the Cronkite School. She’s been an integral part of Reynolds activities, and a well-known presence at journalism conferences and Reynolds events. We appreciate her contributions and hard work, and wish her lots of luck.
