Sharee Broussard receives Public Relations Council of Alabama Diamond Award

Thu, 01/10/2008 (All day)

MOBILE — Sharee Broussard, communications arts instructor at Spring Hill College, was recently named the recipient of the Diamond Award, the Mobile Chapter of the Public Relations Council of Alabama’s highest honor.

Each year, the Mobile chapter of PRCA recognizes the member or members who have made a significant contribution to the betterment of the chapter. Broussard was recognized for her work on streamlining the entry process for both the PRCA Medallion Awards and the Southern Public Relations Federation Lantern Awards.

Broussard and another PRCA member, Jennifer Jenkins, successfully took two systems that required people to enter by mail and updated them so that entries are now accepted electronically. This eliminates the costs incurred by PRCA members who previously produced and mailed any materials they wished to be judged, as well as related documentation and fees. The new systems also makes it easier to track and judge entries.
 
Nominations for the Diamond Award are accepted from all members of the Mobile chapter of PRCA, and the Diamond Award is voted on by the chapter’s board of directors.

Broussard joined the communication arts faculty of Spring Hill College in 2004. She received her Master of Science in 1992 from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she is currently enrolled in the doctoral program.
