Senior Alexis Murphy wins PRSSA award

Public relations student Alexis Murphy, '12, re­cently earned the annual Public Relations Student Society of America award, a nationwide hon­or given to only a hand­ful of students across the United States.

The National Gold Key recognizes exceptional public relations students who have excelled in their studies, have pur­sued professional intern­ships and are leaders in their PRSSA chapter.

"This award means so much to me," Murphy said. "I am honored that my work for PRSSA is be­ing recognized and I am thankful to all my com­munications professors for their constant advice and guidance, without which I would not have been able to achieve this award."

Murphy has managed an online forum for PRSSA that was featured on its national website. She is also a contributing writer to USA Today College.
