THEM Students Assist with the St. Augustine History Festival

THEM students are paving the way for the next generation of event managers with hands-on experience. The students in Rayven Crisafulli’s HFT 2750 Event Management class were engaged in the planning, coordinating, and management of the first St. Augustine History Festival in May 2022. Students in the class were given the opportunity to gain professional experience as true event managers by sourcing and booking vendors, creating graphics, proposing event activities, designing the event aesthetics and evaluating the logistics of the participating venues. A select three students were then invited to participate in the onsite coordination of the Opening Celebration for the festival at the Governor’s House Cultural Center & Museum.
