I am beyond thrilled to announce an addition to the Jaggers Communications family. You might know her from SuzySaid in Charlottesville or as a television star on C’ville Plugged

In, a segment that aired for more than a year on CBS-19, WCAV.

She’s Amy Eastlack, my good friend, a fantastic writer, a social media engagement specialist and the newest member of our team!

Amy has devoted her time to developing business and personal relationships in our community. Her background spans environmental health, health care, retail marketing and nonprofit work, making her experience a perfect fit for our business growth model. Her involvement locally has given her a broad network of contacts and numerous followers in the social space. Having her join the team just makes good sense! (Plus, it occurs to me just now that she’s the fourth team member with roots in the Midwest. We’re good old common sense, down to earth people at Jaggers Communications from a land where “all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average,” as Garrison Keillor would say).

Amy will be providing support in client web monitoring, content development and plan management.

Please join me in welcoming Amy on board and say hello when you see her around Charlottesville!

Jaggers Communications Announces 2011 Community Partner:  Shenandoah National Park
Firm will support 75th Anniversary Outreach

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (March 1, 2011) – Jaggers Communications, a strategic communications firm with a growing presence in Charlottesville, announces the Shenandoah National Park will be its local pro bono community partner for 2011.  The firm will develop an integrated social media and overall communications plan to support Shenandoah National Park’s 75th Anniversary year of celebrations and noteworthy events.

“We are delighted to have been selected as this year’s community partner,” said Martha Bogle, superintendent of Shenandoah National Park.  “With the help of Jaggers Communications’ expertise, we will generate more awareness of the Park and the many events and offerings during the 75th Anniversary Celebration year.”

Jaggers Communications provides a positive impact to the communities in which it has a presence by selecting a nonprofit organization to work with on a pro-bono basis each year. “We believe it is critical to give back to the communities where we live and work,” explained Marijean Jaggers, president and owner of the firm.  “Shenandoah National Park has so many great stories to tell and, as a cherished part of my own back yard, I’m honored to have a role in sharing those stories in our community during the celebrated 75th anniversary.”

About Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park encompasses part of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the state of Virginia and is  long and narrow, with the broad Shenandoah River and valley on the west side and the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont on the east. Although likely the most prominent feature of the Park is the scenic Skyline Drive, almost 40 percent of the 79,579 acres has been designated as wilderness and is protected as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. Shenandoah National Park was dedicated on July 3, 1936 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Throughout 2011, Shenandoah celebrates its 75th Anniversary with events and special offerings.
