Kelly Braun: From Brick to the Big City

Kelly Braun PhotoHaving hopes and dreams is great, but Georgian Court University expects students to act on their intentions, to lead lives of purpose—and Kelly Braun ’15 knows it. She made repeated attempts to land a network internship and did not get a response. Still, Kelly kept at it. Her tenacity paid off when she found an online posting about internships available at the Wendy Williams show in New York City. Kelly, ever prepared, jumped on the opportunity and got the gig.

“The best part was being able to see how a talk show works, and it affirmed the fact that I would love to work in the field,” says Kelly, who was a member of the production management team. Her job—to help make sure everything ran smoothly in the production office and during actual taping. “During my time there, I was doing everything from the typical coffee and food runs to restocking the green rooms and working with the audience,” says Kelly, who is looking for full-time work in TV production.

The Tradition Continues: GCU Junior Ring Ceremony

When they arrived at Georgian Court a few years ago, they may have had second thoughts, Sister of Mercy Helen Neder said during GCU’s recent Junior Ring Ceremony.

“There were probably says when you had to get from one corner of the campus to the other with only a few minutes to be on time for class. On those days you may have thought, ‘Is this class in the next county?'” Juniors and seniors laughed out loud and nodded their heads.

I hope to begin my nursing career in an inpatient hospital setting where I can refine and hone my nursing skills. My immediate goal is to secure a position as a Registered Nurse so I can provide long-term financial stability for my wife and three children. Second to that, I hope to deliver exceptional care that lets my patients know they are the focal point of that care. I intend on acquiring as many additional certifications and credentials as I can attain, and will continue my academic nursing education when my children are a little older.
