GVSU's PRSSA chapter, advised by Prof. Adrienne Wallace, has won the PRSSA's national Pacesetter Chapter Recognition three months in a row: November, December, and January! According to the PRSSA website, the Pacesetter designation recognizes a Chapter’s success in the areas of membership, national participation, and/or Chapter development.
Congratulations to Adrienne and our PRSSA students for their outstanding work—and for helping to further establish our Ad/PR program as a national leader.
