Nicole Acevedo Joins Eastern States Exposition as Communications & Social Media Manager

WEST SPRINGFIELD — Eastern States Exposition (ESE) announced that Nicole Acevedo is the newest addition to the organization’s Marketing department as Communications & Social Media manager.

Acevedo graduated from Western New England University in May 2022 with a bachelor’s degree in creative writing. Over the course of her collegiate career, she served as assistant editor of the Westerner, the university’s newspaper; served as hospitality chair for Spring Event, the campus’s largest music festival; wrote and voiced two scripts for WAMC Northeast Public Radio; and was a two-time winner of the BOLD Media Festival’s written category for her prose poems.

Although she is not a New England native, Acevedo has grown fond of the Greater Springfield community.

“Whenever someone learns that I’m from California, they always ask me the same thing — ‘why would you come here?’” Acevedo said. “It makes me laugh because I understand how people would think I’m crazy for leaving the West Coast, but really, I’ve found my home here. ESE is such an important pillar of the community, and I couldn’t be more grateful or excited to be working as part of such a beloved organization.”

In her new role, Acevedo will be responsible for print publications and projects, content creation for all social-media platforms, and maintaining a positive and effective presence across the digital spectrum.
