I heard about a JCPS PR goon who’s shopping around for a new job AND 55,000 Degrees is looking for a PR goon.
This sounds like a match made in heaven.
Here’s a tidbit from the 55,000 Degrees job posting for a Director of Community Engagement:
55,000 Degrees is a multi-sector partnership and community movement launched in 2010 with the goal of increasing postsecondary degree attainment in the Louisville region to 50% of the working age population (or 55,000 more degrees) by 2020.
Louisville LOST 4,000 degrees from 2010 to 2011. That was the first year that the bozos at 55,000 Degrees began “championing Louisville’s college-going and completion culture, engaging groups and individuals who care and want to help, identifying and deploying effective communications vehicles and facilitating 55K’s role in events, coalitions and action networks.”
Action networks. Deploying effective communications vehicles. Championing Louisville’s college-going and completion culture. Blah, blah, blah.
So much bullshit, so few results.
