For the past decade, ASU students have consistently won the most PRISM Awards, the highest awards for public relations and advertising students, than any other Arkansas university and this year is no exception.

Awarded Sept. 27 and judged by industry leaders, this years PRISM award winners include Jarrett Clark, Katherine Cothern, Amy McKenzie and Brett Hunt for the communications campaigns category; Katherine Cothern for the publications category; Morgan McKenzie for the pitch letter category; Katherine McBride for the radio public service announcement category; and Amber Horton for the special event category.

Winning a PRISM awards speaks very highly of the quality of work and caliber of our (ASU) students. As a teacher, Im proud to be a small part of the winners success, said Lisa Moskal, ASU journalism instructor and PRSSA Adviser.

Prior to the award ceremony students of the ASU Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) attended the Professional Development Day in Little Rock sponsored by their Arkansas parent chapter of Public Relations Society of America.

Accompanied by other Arkansas public relation university programs, students heard from communication, marketing, advertising and public relations industry leaders who covered topics such as interview preparation, resume critiquing, internship seeking and network building.

The Arkansas chapter of Public Relations Society of America hosts the PRISM Awards and Professional Development Day every year in Little Rock. For more information about how to get involved with the ASU PRSSA organization contact President Darah Rounds at or visit
