Jerry Sloan Visiting Professional program brings PR pros (back) to campus

by Robert Stewart, Director

As a Scripps professor from 1992 to 2001, Jerry Sloan was much loved by the public relations students. Now long since retired, his name once again is resonating with students who come in contact with the Jerry Sloan Visiting Professionals who talk non-stop about their mentor and former professor.

This semester, Troy Kirkpatrick (BSJ ’97), Heather Mitchell (BSJ ’97) and Lindsay Komlanc (BSJ ’02) returned as JSVPs to talk with students in classes and in one-on-one office hours. They also sat down with me to talk about their experiences as PR professionals, as students, and their fond memories about Jerry Sloan.



Jerry now lives in North Carolina with his wife, Jeanne. Read more about Jerry.
