13 Jul Flint Community Schools Names Lambert, Edwards & Associates as Public Relations Agency of Record
GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, July 13, 2016 – Lambert, Edwards & Associates (LE&A), Michigan’s largest public relations and public affairs agency, has been named the agency of record for Flint Community Schools (FCS). Operating with the mission to develop a community of learners who are prepared to live, work and contribute to an ever-changing society, FCS provides a wide range of academic programs and services, from pre-school to adult education.
Working collaboratively with the district, LE&A will develop and implement a strategic and comprehensive communications plan to further strengthen transparency and community relations. The firm will provide a variety of services including counsel, media relations, corporate, community and crisis communications, and content development.
“Flint Community Schools strives to be the source of top quality education and enrichment programming to the Flint community,” said Bilal Tawwab, Superintendent of FCS. “We look forward to working with the LE&A team to increase awareness of the district’s excellent programs and initiatives, as well as sharing the commitment and passion our educators have in helping us achieve our primary objective – improving student learning.”
LE&A’s deep experience in the education sector makes the agency uniquely qualified to support FCS. Much of LE&A’s work since its inception nearly 20 years ago has been geared towards telling the “impact” stories ranging from what a school system delivers and how corporate partners can create positive change to how non-profits and the Department of Education can make a difference.
