Georgia Southern University Student, Tucker Hill, Completes Internship with Walker County

Prior to interning with Walker County, Tucker Hill, a multimedia film production student at Georgia Southern University, was not extensively familiar with county government. Through his public relations internship, Hill learned immensely about the day-to-day operations of county government. He learned that there are many moving parts to government and that completing tasks can take more time than the public realizes.

During the course of his internship, Hill was in charge of the "How Walker Works" video series that explores and explains different divisions of county government. During his time with the county, Hill filmed 10 segments, which will debut in November through the Walker County Government website at believed that this was the most successful task he accomplished during his time with Walker County. He was also believes his videos helped to launch and popularize the "Walker Rocks"campaign that showcases outdoor activities available in Walker County.

Hill’s favorite part of the internship experience was filming in many different locations. He learned about framing and conducting interviews to get the best information, which he believes will help him moving forward as he makes targeted testimonial advertisements.

To future interns, Hill advises them to be prepared as county government is bustling and extremely busy. While Hill enjoyed his experience with Walker County, he intends to go into marketing upon graduation.
