Turning the tables on Philip, he was featured in a release last week from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), announcing his selection as one of 11 new inductees of the College of Fellows, an organization comprised of approximately 350 public relations professionals from across the United States.  The PRSA characterizes the selection as “the pinnacle of a professional’s career.”  Philip has earned this recognition and we are proud of him and grateful for his service.  Despite his new membership in the prestigious College of Fellows, I think Philip might say that the pinnacle of his career has actually been found through the investment of his life in the lives of others.  Our very best wishes to Philip and Shellyn.   

The world is better because of the faithful service of Philip Poole.
