Collaborators and Partners


Public Relations Practitioner, The Digital Preservation Project
     No project is ever accomplished without collaborators and this project is no exception. Elizabeth Skube is our PR manager and acts as the digital PR practitioner for this project. She manages all communications between my efforts and the general public to yield donations keeping in mind our success will be based on reaching 100% of our funding goal.
     Her responsibilities are to reach out to people using social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr; she is quite the expert on these platforms. Managing our WordPress blog gives us the opportunity to add new and exciting twists to our project as they occur. She does encourage people to contact her via e-mail with any questions about the project. Her work in communication and sharing our message in a way that cultivates interest and sincere care for humanitarian initiatives is key to achieving our goal. She is proof that younger generations still care about the foundations of our history and the few relics left behind. Working with her is a pleasure.
