Jacksonville State University public relations director Patty Hobbs spoke at the Exchange Club meeting Thursday. Hobbs talked about her 21 years working in Washington, D.C., where she was director of Internal Communications and executive assistant at the U. S. Department of Education.

Her job included managing a variety of scheduling, briefing and administrative positions for five Secretaries of Education. She was the administrative assistant to the counsel’s office at the White House during President Ronald Reagan’s term and served as staff assistant for the office of Congressman Dick Cheney.

“It was a great place to work,” said Hobbs. “Things really changed there in the past 10 years or so and it didn’t seem so great any more, so I decided to come home. I miss my friends but I don’t miss the hustle and bustle.”

Alabama district president Joyce Franklin recognized past president Mike Douglas for receiving the Distinguished club President’s Award. She also presented the Big E Patch and inducted two new members.

National president Don Wright recognized long time members of the club, including Consolidated Publishing’s Phil Sanguinetti, who has been a member for the past 50 years.
