Hometown News Release

Congratulations, graduate! To celebrate this important milestone, we encourage you to send a personalized news release to your local news outlets. Using your school’s template as bulleted below, create a customized news release about yourself that you can share.

  1. Click the link to your respective school below. A Word document will appear.
  2. Replace bracketed information with your personal details – if you received a doctoral degree, notate Dr. <<your last name here>>.
  3. We recommend you direct your graduation announcement to a general newsroom email address and not to specific reporters. To avoid having your email deleted or caught in a spam folder, we highly recommend that you find a general email address on the newspaper’s website or in the print edition.
  4. Copy the release and paste it directly into an e-mail message addressed to your local newspaper(s). Use the subject line Local resident graduates from A.T. Still University
  5. (OPTIONAL) You may also include a photo. Newsrooms are inundated with email, so an attachment may slow the receipt of your message or it may be blocked by a spam filter. Instead, we suggest you include the following note at the end of your email: “Photo available upon request.”

For any questions, please contact ATSU public relations representatives, Karen Scott (Mesa), kescott@atsu.edu or Kit Avanzado (Kirksville), kavanzado@atsu.edu
