Rainforest Art Foundation Hires New Intern

Rainforest Art Foundation Welcomes Intern Iris MacLean


SHREVEPORT, La., May 7, 2014 – The Shreveport branch of the Rainforest Art Foundation is proud to welcome new intern, Iris MacLean. MacLean will help fill the public relations needs of the foundation as it prepares to open in Shreveport this December.


MacLean will play a large role in maintaining the foundation’s social media, event promotion, and organization. Her work in a variety of different service industry and office administrative assistance jobs mixed with her education in public relations has prepared her to begin an internship with the foundation.


MacLean is a senior studying mass communication with a concentration in public relations at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. She expects to graduate in the spring of 2015.


MacLean was born in Maine and moved to Shreveport with her family at age 12 where she has remained since. Her love of Shreveport, nature, art, and the development of a cultural downtown area makes her a perfect fit for the foundation.


MacLean enjoys helping local artists with musical and installation projects. She also enjoys going to art, music, and theater shows around town. Growing up in Maine she was instilled with a strong sense of appreciation for nature at a young age. She often went on mountain hikes, camping trips, and canoe trips with her family as a child. Her love of nature stems from these times with her family.
