Sarah Keenan

Communications and Public Relations Assistant at WKAR Public Media

Summary

From the moment that toddler-Sarah stumbled upon Microsoft Paint, she knew that she loved being immersed in colors and creating pretty pictures. Since kindergartner-Sarah's first day of art class, when she spent longer than other students perfecting the fine details of her piggy drawing, she knew that she wouldn't stop until she was happy with her art. On the very first day of college-student-Sarah's first graphic design course, she knew that she had chosen a career path that she loved.

Sarah Keenan is an Advertising Creative major at Michigan State University, concentrating in Art Direction and minoring in Graphic Design. Currently in her junior year, she will be graduating from both the College of Communication Arts and Sciences and the Honors College in the spring of 2019.

In her spare time, Sarah enjoys getting involved in theatre; she creates advertisements for plays, acts in plays and musicals, and performs improvisational comedy.
