Ivy Tech Kokomo Region hires new media relations coordinator

KOKOMO, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College recently added Aaron Leedy as the new media relations and communications coordinator for the Kokomo Region. Leedy joins Ivy Tech after working at CBS affiliate WLFI-18 in West Lafayette, Ind., since December 2009.

Aaron Leedy joins Ivy Tech's Kokomo Region as the college's new media relations and communications coordinator.

While at WLFI, Leedy worked as a multi-platform journalist and news anchor covering local stories in the Greater Lafayette area and surrounding counties.

“My time at WLFI has been a great learning opportunity. I plan to take the skills and knowledge I learned from my experience there and apply them to my new role at Ivy Tech.”

A native of Miami County, Leedy spent the majority of his life in the area and even took classes at the Ivy Tech campuses in Kokomo, Logansport, Peru and Wabash.

“It’s great to be back in the area and working at an organization that really gave me my first start in higher education. Because of Ivy Tech Community College, I was able to begin college and pursue my interest in communications.”

As the new media relations and communications coordinator, Aaron is looking forward to expanding on Ivy Tech’s already established relationships with local media. He holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in broadcast production and sales from Vincennes University. He also is certified by the Radio Advertising Bureau.

“It’s my belief that everyone has a story to tell. I look forward to being a part of the future successes here at Ivy Tech. The college is really at a positive time in terms of growth. Being able to be a part of that is very exciting.”

Leedy’s new role as the media relations and communications coordinator is effective immediately. He replaces David Gray, who has accepted a full-time faculty position and will be teaching communication courses at the college’s Logansport Campus.
