Howard earns one of three coveted Lockheed Martin Leader positions

Elizabeth Howard, a fourth-year public relations student at Grady College, is one of three students in the nation selected this year for the Lockheed Martin Communications Leadership Program. Elizabeth is a senior from Peachtree City, Georgia. She is the treasurer of the UGA PRSSA chapter and is chairperson of the Shop with the Bulldawgs program.

Lockheed Martin's Communications Leadership Development Program (CLDP) is an intensive two-year rotational program that introduces participants to corporate communications. The CLDP gives participants experience in the four facets of communication: media relations, marketing, employee communications and community relations. Participants spend one year focused on employee communications and community relations—followed by a move to a different business area in another part of the country to focus on marketing and media relations.

Howard is one of more than 10 UGA students selected to participate in the highly-competitive program in the past 15 years.  Lockheed Martin looks for students with outstanding technical skills, leadership abilities and practical experience. 

Howard will begin her first two-year rotation at Lockheed Martin in June.
