(Orangeburg, S.C.) - SC State will host executive speaker Dana Tucker, on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at noon in the Belcher Hall fourth floor auditorium. Tucker’s discussion topic will be “How to Gain National Markets for your Bank.”
Tucker is president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Minerva Media & Publishing, Incorporated, parent company to How We Live Public Relations and How We Live Magazine where she acts as publisher and editor-in-chief.
Tucker describes her publication as a melding of some of her favorite magazines where House Beautiful meets Ebony meets InStyle to form the sleek, enlightening and innovative, How We Live Magazine.
She created the publication to fill a need for the minority segment of the population largely overlooked in print by mainstream home, décor and style editors. Additionally, she created a magazine that showcases the inherent beauty, raw talent, positive images, and matchless style spread throughout the African-American community, while breaking down myths and stereotypes that seek to confine a culture and define “How We Live.”
How We Live Magazine can be found nationwide at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Hastings and B. Dalton Booksellers, plus Publix, Food Lion, Ingles and Marty’s grocers, as well as Universal News Stands, 15 airports nationwide, the gift shops at Palmetto Health Richland and Baptist Hospitals, Columbia Newsstands, BJ’s Restaurant, J&J Interior Designs, and many other booksellers, newsstands, and salons across the country and in Canada.
