The GIS Program at Washington College is heavily invested in the community and world around us. Here you can see how our Weyr Media team uses Social Media and Web Design to empower local and national businesses.
Weyr Media sprung up at the GIS Lab as the natural progression from managing our own website, to providing cost effective and efficient web design and social media management for mostly local, and smaller, businesses. From our tech wiz web designers to our wordsmith English majors, our student employees are able to consistently produce quality material for our Weyr Media clients. In the video below, you can hear the GIS program coordinator Stew Bruce talking about the creation of Weyr Media and what we can do for you.
Interns Kelsey Mattingly and Liberty Frank have been working under Emily Aiken to make sure the website is up to date with the most potent information. The website uses LiveWhale, a very friendly content management system for higher education. Though WAC has only been live on LiveWhale for about 6 months, it has been a fairly painless transition. Be sure to check the website frequently for the newest updates!
In October of 2003, the Upper Shore Regional Council was created to serve as a regional planning and development agency for Cecil, Kent, and Queen Anne’s counties. Our team manages the USRC social media platforms as well as the council’s website in order to maintain a prevalent social media presence. In addition, the Weyr Media team manages the council’s Upper Shore Harvest Directory, a free tool offered to businesses in Cecil, Kent, and Queen Anne’s counties, which promotes such businesses and encourages consumers to buy local.
