Conference Sponsorships Awarded to Area Students

For a second year, PRSA Richmond has awarded sponsorships to local students to support them as they travel to the PRSSA National Conference. This year’s conference, “Rebuild, Rethink, Renew,” will be held in Atlanta, Ga. Nov. 6 – 10, 2015 in conjunction with PRSA’s International Conference.

Brandon Singletary, PRSSA president at Virginia Commonwealth University; Myles Smith of Virginia State University; and Ben Stembridge, PRSSA co-president at Longwood University are the 2015 recipients. The sponsorship covers conference registration and a portion of incidentals.

“As a former member of PRSSA, I remember wanting to attend National’s events but not having the funds to do so,” said Casey Ferguson, PRSA Richmond student relations chair. “These sponsorships provide the much needed support to local students who want to engage with the public relations community outside of their Richmond network.”
