High Caliber: An HRTM alumna shoots for the moon as an event coordinator for International Securities Exchange
Ashley Elliott, a 2002 graduate of the College, grew up in Lancaster, SC, and has been a Gamecock fan her entire life. “Saturdays were spent cheering on the Gamecocks,” Ashley says. “I don’t think I ever really had a choice on where I was going to college. I always knew I would be a Gamecock.”
Similarly, Ashley remembers always wanting to plan parties for her friends and creating surprise birthday parties for her parents when she was younger. “I always had a passion for taking a vision for an event and bringing it to life.” That passion led her to the School of Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management and to her career choice—event planning. “I have always been drawn to the hospitality industry,” Ashley says. “Being an event coordinator just seemed like the natural career choice and HRTM was the best fit for that.”
