Congrats to the Grads! Profiles in Success—2015


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.

Commencement 2014: Shaun Brennan, Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

IMG_9496

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.

Choosing to attend Georgian Court University was the best decision I’ve ever made. Like many high school students the college application process was stressful and confusing. Fortunately, I was accepted to all three colleges I applied to, so after some consideration and the planning of finances for the next four years, my parents and I decided that Georgian Court was the best choice for me. My mother was absolutely thrilled! One of her kids was finally going to a Catholic school! As luck would have it, four years later, both of her kids are going to Catholic school! I’m happy to say, my brother will begin attending Georgian Court in the fall as a criminal justice major.
