What is communications?

The Communications Department maintains the image of the Ohio River Valley in the press and on social media.  You’ll see our Communications Department escorting press guests around at conventions, posting to the ORV social media accounts, and taking pictures at conventions.

Hi everyone! My name is Julia Lotterer, a junior at Ursuline, and I’m incredibly excited to serve on cabinet as a Communications Specialist this year!

      Hi Cole,

      Thank you so much for your interest in JSA and for reaching out to us about this! I apologize for the late reply. West Virginia is a part of the ORV, so your best bet for setting up a chapter at your high school is by contacting our Director of Expansion, Griffin Noe. His email is .
      I strongly urge you to go through the steps to set up a JSA chapter at your school. JSA is an incredible experience and it has helped me and so many others earn leadership experience, become better at public speaking, and meet some pretty great people. It will be one of the best choices of your life.

      Kate Majidzadeh
      ORV Director of Technology
