What she loves about Tower Agency is that she is able to work with real clients and gain real-world experience that helps prepare her for her career.

She loves how Tower Agency is like a second family and is one of the most hardworking groups of people she’s ever met. Her favorite Wartburg memory is getting to be the Wartburg Knight while riding a horse in the homecoming parade this year. One fun fact about Kaylin is that she owns a hedgehog who loves to swim.

Seeing a need for an organization that would allow public relations majors to practice the skills they learned in the classroom, the Tower Agency was created in the spring of 1996. Under the advisement of Shelly Green, the Tower Agency was founded by Wartburg students Christi Larson ’97, Eric Allen ’98, Melissa Jacobson ’99 and Suzanne Behnke ’97. Larson served as the organization’s first Chief Executive officer.
