PRSA Georgia's Chapter Champions
This award recognizes PRSA Georgia members who have gone the extra mile in service to the Chapter. The award is presented on a monthly basis, or as appropriate. Eligibility for the award includes all Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond the call of duty as a Chapter volunteer.
A successful chapter runs on the talents of its volunteers. The Chapter Champion Award recognizes the hard work of our dedicated members. All PRSA Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond as Chapter volunteers are eligible. The Chapter Champion Award is presented at the Chapter's monthly luncheon meeting.
Mandy Wilson is the recipient of the January 2019 Chapter Champion
Award for her dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. She served
as the co-chair of the Chapter’s Awards Celebration Committee in 2018.
In this role, she helped direct the logistics of the ceremony and assisted
with obtaining donations and sponsorship funding. She is set to serve as
co-chair once again in 2019 for the Chapter’s Awards Celebration Committee. Previously she served as co-chair of the Chapter’s Public Relations Committee for two years. She has been involved as a PRSA member for over a decade.
“I decided to become involved with the Georgia Chapter after moving to Atlanta from out of state and starting my job at GPB. My chapter membership has helped me build a sense of community with other PR professionals working at various organizations,” she said. “PRSA Georgia has served as a wonderful resource for advice, inspiration and validation for my profession.”
Wilson is the director of communications at Georgia Public Broadcasting, where she oversees marketing, social media, publications, and other initiatives to promote PBS, NPR and GPB original programming. Wilson received a B.A.Sc in Radio and Television with a specialization in
broadcast journalism from Middle Tennessee State University.
