HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 25, 2013 – Two High Point University students lived the dream of walking a red carpet. Junior Zoey Miller and senior Carly Easton each worked as assistants for the CMA Awards in Nashville, Tenn. this year.

The communication majors served as assistants to the Vice President of Communications for CMA. They escorted celebrities down the red carpet and helped award winners get through interviews after giving their acceptance speeches. In the days after the awards, Miller and Easton continued working with CMA as country stars recorded video news releases for CMA’s Country Christmas Special on ABC.

“It was great to see what we’ve learned in class being used in the real world,” says Easton. “Watching these skills being implemented was probably one of the best learning opportunities of the experience.”

Miller says she felt confident going into the internship because of her experiences at HPU.

“I’m not afraid to talk to anyone, because of my close relationships with my professors,” explains Miller. “The conversations I have with them give me a level of maturity to talk to people in just about any position.”

Miller says she was able to make a lot of great connections while in Nashville and has already secured an internship with a music production company there over the summer. Easton has a number of job interviews lined up and expects her career to take her back to Nashville in the future.
