myturntointern Award
In the 2015/2016 school year, Professor Barrett immersed herself in her field in the perfect role reversal. It was her turn to become a 'senior' intern, as she completed a year-long professional development leave to update her skills through a series of PR internships with her grads. She received the 2016 Conestoga College Innovation Award in recognition of this professional development project and its impact on the college, the community and Conestoga PR students. Through ongoing internships and industry projects, Professor Barrett is now giving back to her students by recognizing those who have been exceptional in their own internship placement.
