    Lily Hesen, from left, Kelsie Madison and Tyler Thomas, all Marketing students at SAU’s Rankin College of Business, said their classroom experiences prepared them to succeed in their various internship experiences over the past summer.

    Three Marketing students in the Rankin College of Business at Southern Arkansas University recently completed internships this past summer. Those students are Lily Hesen, Kelsie Madison, and Tyler Thomas.
