As you might expect, because there are a lot of small businesses in my family, theres a lot of buy local sentiment. But not everyone feels that way. During our rowdy conversation, Tammy made it clear that shed rather shop at Wal-Mart than at her neighborhood stores. It was through this course that I learned perseverance, strategy and for the most part where to place a comma. Through this class and the guidance of Dr. Colistra I have been able to see myself as more than a student, but as a publicist. The City of Sheridan has resolved to adopt a strong buy local policy statement to help guide the City in its purchasing decisions. The purpose of this policy is for the City to consider not just the price in choosing vendors, but also the local service component.
I was also able to create a feature release that represented more than just eating local, it represented one persons struggle to aid his ailing community. It is because of that news release, I have been given the honor as serving as the PR Director of PRSSA at West Virginia University this fall.

Small, locally-owned businesses are more likely to keep the money they earn in the community ; its not siphoned off to the corporate offices in Akron, Ohio. Why shouldnt I shop at Wal-Mart? Tammy asked. The stuff is cheap, and I dont have a lot of money to spend. The argument discussion continued for several minutes: Tammy vs. Ive always joined local gyms instead of national chains. Kris and I almost always choose local restaurants instead of national chains. I prefer small, independent bookstores to national chains. (Except that I use Amazon a lot, thus proving my hypocrisy.) Whenever possible, I choose independent movie theaters instead of the national chains. I buy a Mexican Coke and a cinnamo. The BuyLocal Initiative was no different. Once I got a taste of the work we were doing I was addicted. So now I find myself facing a dilemma. My time with BuyLocal Initiative is ending, and Im not really sure where to go from here. You had almost all you needed down the street or a short bus ride away. Most of the folks who responded on Twitter and Facebook try to support local stores over national chains, but a few do so with reservations. Ill tell you how. Every time that I get a bad grade on a test, or find that I didnt get the job that I applied for; I am going to remember the residents of Ritchie County. I wasnt sure how I would measure up to some of my classmates, especially those with years of internship experience. I barely had any knowledge of press releases or fact sheets, honestly I barely could deal with commas and semicolons. My cousin Bob has a company that builds granite countertops. My cousin Tammy runs a tutoring business out of her home. And my youngest brother is trying to get his own business off the ground. The rest of the Roths. When Tammy learned that her brother Ted lives hours from the nearest Wal-Mart, she was appalled. I would not like that, she said.

I feel that my background as an American Sikh will provide an innovative perspective in the universitys search for knowledge while helping it to develop a basis for future success.

It was a smallish gathering (only about 20 adults and 10 kids but it was lively. Roths can be rambunctious, and were not afraid to debate with each other. Over our sausages and sauerkraut, somehow the conversation turned to supporting local businesses.
That placemat represented more than just an advertisement; it was tangible proof of me making a difference inside Ritchie County. I was able to see that those restaurant patrons would finally be able to see and start to grasp a concept that was so near and dear to my heart.
