Samford University public relations student Taylor Korte has earned the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) 2020 Robin M. Urbanski Memorial Scholarship.
The organization presents the $1,000 scholarship to help it realize its mission to prepare young adults to enter the public relations profession, and in honor of Robin M. Urbanski-Janikowski, an exemplary public relations professional felled by cancer in 2011. Recipients are selected from junior and senior PRSSA members who have earned an overall GPA of 3.00 in preparation for a career in public relations.
Korte will be recognized during the Public Relation Student Society of American (PRSSA) Awards Ceremony during PRSA’s international ICON conference Oct. 26-29.
