Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) has announced its selection of Alli Halbkat as the new marketing and public relations intern. Halbkat is a Tryon resident and a rising junior at Polk County High School. Her plan is to go to a four-year school and major in marketing and psychology.
“I am very excited to be part of the team at Tryon Fine Arts Center,” Halbkat said. “I feel very comfortable and accepted here. The staff genuinely cares about the arts, and the people who live here.”
Halbkat will work at TFAC from mid-June through early August.
This paid internship, made available through a grant from Polk County Community Foundation, is designed to introduce a young adult to the field of marketing, teaching skills that can be used in a business career later in life. It involves learning how to promote programs using media, writing and social networks as well as learning how to work in the box office and reception desk, interacting with the public.
“I think that a new face in the staff will fit right in with the new and exciting renovations and programs that are coming,” said Beth Child, TFAC executive director.
