PBS Reno Expands Educational and Marketing Outreach with New Employees
RENO, NV (Sept. 21, 2021) – PBS Reno is pleased to welcome two new employees to its staff, thereby expanding the station’s Education and Marketing departments. Maria Glanzmann and Megan Lee Aguas joined the PBS Reno team in August.
In her new role as PBS Reno Education Manager, Glanzmann communicates with PBS Reno’s numerous facilitators, who visit local classrooms in Washoe County School District, Carson City, Douglas County, and many more surrounding communities. Glanzmann will oversee the materials and supplies utilized by PBS Reno’s Education department and ensure each facilitator meets the needs of local students. Glanzmann brings more than 20 years experience with Washoe County School District to PBS Reno.
“I am grateful to be a part of the Education Team at PBS Reno,” said Glanzmann. “I was drawn to PBS Reno because of the amazing impact we have in our community. The educational resources we bring to the students in our viewing area have positive outcomes which enhance the lives of those we reach. I hope to utilize my love of teaching and learning at PBS Reno to continue the good work already being done here.”
“As a teacher of young children for more than 15 years, Maria has experience as a leader on staff, teacher trainer, and teacher mentor in her school,” said Nancy Maldonado, PBS Reno Vice President of Education. “Her leadership and strong administrative and organizational skills will be an asset to our department.”
In her new role as PBS Reno Digital Marketing Assistant, Aguas collaborates daily with PBS Reno’s Digital and Marketing teams to create engaging content on the station’s website and social media platforms. Aguas graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, and has been active in the theatre and arts communities in Reno, Las Vegas, and Chicago.
“I’m so excited to join the PBS Reno team and can’t thank everyone at the station enough for making me feel so welcome,” said Aguas. “I’m eager to learn from and contribute to not just the digital marketing team, but to the station as a whole.”
“Megan brings great enthusiasm and creativity to the PBS Reno Digital and Marketing teams,” said Chris Orr, PBS Reno Director of Art and Digital Marketing. “Her sense of community and understanding of the PBS mission will enhance our digital offerings and projects. Megan's strong communication skills will be invaluable as the station continues to develop and grow. We are excited to add her energy and ideas to the work we do.”
