Porter-Leath: Early Childhood Academy’s Groundbreaking/Grand Opening Event Planning

Porter-Leath

Kelley & Associates handled event management, public relations and promotion for both the Groundbreaking and Grand Opening of Porter Leath’s Early Childhood Academy, Memphis’ premier early childhood institute for student and teacher development. The 32,000 square foot facility accommodates over 200 Head Start and Early Head Start students in 16 classrooms, providing the Memphis community with the programs, the people and the place to build complete success in early childhood education.

For the Academy’s Grand Opening, we enlisted the help of Porter-Leath Head Start students equipped with construction gear, hardhats and toy shovels to demonstrate the Academy’s role in rebuilding local early childhood education. In addition to developing a customized media database and news release, Kelley & Associates created an e-save-the-date, print invitation, e-reminder and event program to promote the Academy Groundbreaking.

Kelley & Associates also created a news release, e-save-the-date, print invitation and e-reminder to promote the Academy Grand Opening, as well as coordinated a Media Tour for exclusive interview and photography opportunities.
