SPUSD Board of Education Approves Hiring Andrea Fox as Career Internship Specialist

On November 10, 2015 the South Pasadena Board of Education approved Superintendent Geoff Yantz’s recommendation to hire Andrea Fox as the district’s first Career Internship Specialist. In her new role, Fox will work directly with staff, administration and local businesses to create an internship program designed to expose students to a variety of work experiences.

“The opportunity to help build a new program for the students of South Pasadena is an exciting challenge,” said Fox. “Offering internships in many sectors furthers the Board’s strategic goal of enabling greater achievement for all students by developing relationships with active and supportive regional business and educational institutions to provide students with real world experiences.”

Fox comes to South Pasadena Unified School District with more than 20 years experience in communications and public relations, most recently serving as the Senior Manager of public relations for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses.

Prior to her work with the Tournament, Fox oversaw her own public relations business working with a variety of clients including companies in the education industry such as Follett Corporation and Pearson Education. She also spent two years working for the University of Illinois in its public affairs and alumni relations departments. Fox began her career at Burson-Marsteller working on national consumer campaigns.

Fox holds both a Master of Science and a Bachelor of Science in Advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is a certified substitute teacher and is working to secure her CTE certification. Fox starts her new position on November 30, 2015.
