A college is always tickled to welcome back its own alumni as faculty and staff members. So PUC is delighted to see Class of 1998 alumna Julie Z. Lee stepping into the position of public relations director. Lee also worked in the public relations office as a student writer and then as media relations coordinator following graduation, so she’s no stranger to the department. The wife of PUC visual arts professor Milbert Mariano, Lee most recently worked as director of communications for Maranatha Volunteers International in Sacramento.
Meanwhile, after three and a half years as the public relations director, Michelle Rai (also a PUC alumna) has entered the teaching world as a full-time faculty member, joining Rosemary Collins and James Chase in the PUC communication department.
