FPU - Items Needed for the Presidency and the Press



To Whom It May Concern:


I am the Graduate Assistant for the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire. The Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication is dedicated to educating leaders of conscience in public communication. In addition to housing the University's Department of Mass Communication, the Center also sponsors a variety of programs including a national conference for high school media called the Presidency and the Press. This conference reaches out to our nation’s high school media. In one short week, we will introduce some of the country’s most engaged youth to the dynamics of presidential election politics, the role of the media who cover it, and the relationship between the two. The Presidency and the Press is from July 25th to July 31st. We have twenty high school students enrolled in this year’s program.


Upon arriving at the University, the Center will be giving each of the high school students a tote bag. We are striving to fill the tote bags with media and/or political related “goodies” that the students can take back home with them. More specifically, we are looking for memorabilia from well-known news agencies and political and media related organizations. In addition, we are looking for informational material on the State of New Hampshire and also former President Franklin Pierce.


Such items can include, but is not limited to, educational material on the topics and/or company; pens and pencils containing the company’s logo; copies of newspapers, magazines; stickers; buttons; lanyards; pamphlets, et cetera. These “goodies” will serve as a reward for the high school students for their participation in the program, inform them about our state history,and also advertise to them about reputable organizations in our area.


Your generosity would be most appreciated if you had twenty to twenty-five small items that you would be willing to donate to the tote bags. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns.


Have a wonderful day,
