The GVSU Chapter of PRSSA won several awards at the annual PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) conference in San Diego earlier this week.
The students won one award for University Service for their work on the athletic department’s campaign to use the university’s original mascot. Called a ‘faux back’ day. For one day, basketball teams and fans used the ‘Sawyer’ mascot instead the university’s standard Laker.
The GV PRSSA group also won an award recognizing their relationship with WMPRSA, the local professional chapter of PRSA. The GVSU PRSSA Chapter also earned another Star Chapter Award, which is granted to student chapters that meet 8 of 10 specific requirements.
Finally, Assistant Professor Adrienne Wallace won a Teahan Award as Outstanding Faculty Advisor.
