PGCC Students Lend Skills to Presidential Inauguration
Students will support Hargrove, a trade show management company, with event logistics.
Students from the hospitality and tourism department at Prince George’s Community College will get the job experience of a lifetime when they lend their skills to President Barack Obama's upcoming inauguration.
“In addition to being a part of history, participating in the presidential inauguration will give our students a tremendous professional opportunity to work on a large scale event in the Washington, D.C. area,” said Joanna Lanzirotti, assistant professor of hospitality, tourism and culinary arts.
From Jan. 14-21, 12 students will support Hargrove, a Prince George’s County-based trade show management company, in placing and preparing signs at the inauguration, among other tasks.
Hargrove was selected as the official general services contractor by the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee.
