Kent State'S Bateman Blue Team Places 2nd in National PR Competition
Fantastic breaking news: A team of our PR students has placed second in the Public Relations Student Society of America's national and highly competitive Bateman Award case study competition on anti-bullying. Eighty university teams entered the competition; 68 submitted casebooks in March; and our team advanced over 65 of these schools to the final round, eventually winning second place. Amazing work!
We congratulate all PR students who entered this prestigious competition and especially members of our nationally ranked "Bateman Blue" team, all of them senior PR majors: Kirsten Bowers, Wezley Garlick, Mary Kate Garvey, Caitlin Potts, and Lyndsey Sager. We also thank and congratulate their faculty adviser, Professor Tim Roberts, and their professional adviser, Erin Orsini, a 2012 KSU PR grad who works at True Digital Strategies.
