I was responsible for...

So far the greatest Accomplishment from my experience has been having the opportunity to work on an event from start to finish and see the ending result.

I learned...
The lesson that I have learned from this experience is that event planning is more than a 9-5 job. There is a lot of work and behind the scenes things that need to be done in order to make an event successful ane memorable.
