PRSSA Chapter Award
10/21/2019 By Maddie Shuler- Shippensburg’s Public Relations Student Society of America received the Star Chapter Award. This award is granted to any chapter of PRSSA by the national committee. If the chapter has met specific chapter and professional goals, they are eligible to apply for the award. It is a competitive award to apply for and the chapter must meet eight out of 10 requirements to qualify, including: completing at least on community service project and attending a national conference. Among these events, Shippensburg also conducted a student outreach program for the Shippensburg Area School District last semester. This achievement encourages each chapter to build relationships with clients, expand their program and seek opportunities. Vanessa Grzyobski, the president of the Shippensburg PRSSA, says “It’s a very selective award, so if you come from a chapter that has received the award, it really is a big deal when you go out into the real world.” For more information about the organization, visit shipprssa.org.
