COLLEGE STATION—Texas A&M University Press has named Kelsey Lawrence, an English major from Austin, Texas, the T. Edgar and Nancy Paup Marketing Intern for 2012.
This position was established by a generous gift from T. Edgar "Ted" Paup '74 and his wife Nancy, enabling the Press to recruit a talented, energetic student worker to assist with inventory management and related marketing responsibilities of Texas A&M Press and the six other Texas scholarly publishers in its distribution consortium. The Paup gift not only benefits the Press but also substantively supports the educational goals and ambitions of a worthy Texas A&M student.
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature from Texas A&M in December, Lawrence has taken on these new responsibilities at the Press, welcoming the opportunity to expand her knowledge and practical experience in publishing, the field in which she hopes to make her career. These additional credentials were helpful in her recent acceptance into the master's degree program in Publishing & Writing at Emerson College, in Boston, Massachusetts, and also the master’s degree program for Publishing: Digital and Print Media at New York University. Lawrence is planning to visit both campuses before enrolling for the Fall semester.
Ted Paup's mother, Chan Driscoll, was a founding member of the Texas A&M University Press Board in 1978 and served on this important support organization until her death in 2007. Now, Ted is an active member of the Texas A&M Press Advancement Board, continuing his mother’s legacy of supportive, engaged interest in the Press’s publications program.
