San Miguel High School is pleased to announce it has hired Courtney Pulitzer as the new Director of Marketing & Communications, beginning Fall term 2021. In this newly-developed position she will work directly with SMHS President & CEO Dave Mason.
As the only Arizona school in the nationwide Cristo Rey Network (CRN), this role traditionally operates within the Advancement department. Like other CRN schools, San Miguel has a multi-pronged approach to its marketing and communications as it aims to reach not only potential students but also the business community for its Corporate Work Study Program, a unique feature of Cristo Rey schools.
“With so many departments, all equally important, we felt it important for this role to operate seamlessly between academics, admissions, advancement, and Corporate Work Study to convey the full and rich experience of life at San Miguel High School,” stated President & CEO Dave Mason.
Pulitzer comes from a background of online marketing, events, and public relations with an emphasis on developing community. Combining her prior experiences with her own business in New York, as an Alumni events coordinator while in Paris, France, and with marketing and events in Tucson, Pulitzer’s network opens SMHS to a strong audience of regional and international leaders.
