Once again, Rowan’s chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America has outdone itself in achievement at the national level. During the national conference in Washington, DC this past weekend, Rowan’s chapter was awarded Outstanding Firm in the Nation and Best Tactic in the Nation. These awards further cement Rowan PRSSA’s status as the “winningest” chapter in the nation. Congratulations to all the members, past and current presidents Kim Ciesla and Jeff Miele, and their advisors Professors Tony Fulginiti, Tracie Babb, and Suzanne FitzGerald!
At the conference, Rebecca Cicione was also awarded the Lawrence G. Foster Award, recognizing “an undergraduate student who has demonstrated an understanding and commitment to achieving excellence as a future public relations professional.” Congratulations, Rebecca!
Rowan’s PRSSA chapter not only achieved awards, but also presented them, recognizing four universities with a NODAC award for organ donor awareness campaigns. You can read more about the NODAC program on the Rowan PRSSA website at http://www.rowanprssa.org/
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the Public Relations program officially received its CEPR (Certified in Education for Public Relations) re-certification at this event. This re-certification establishes the department, for the next six years, as one of only a handful of PR programs in the country to be so designated. Congratulations to all of the faculty and staff of the PR program for their hard work in this achievement.
Please join me in congratulating the students, faculty, and staff of the Rowan Public Relations program for these impressive achievements.
