K-State PRSSA one of five chapters nationwide selected to participate in mentorship program

By Ellery Sedlaceck, PRSSA VP of External Relations

PRSSA logoMANHATTAN, Kansas— The Kansas State University Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) was selected as one of five Chapters nationwide to participate in the competitive Aspire Higher: Future Fellows Mentoring Program.

The program pairs students from each Chapter with mentors across the United States from the prestigious PRSA College of Fellows. Fellows are professionals in public relations who are believed to be the ‘best of the best’ among their peers.

During the mentorship, mentors and mentees will spend time throughout the school year discussing goals and future career plans, as well as industry trends and issues.

In order to participate in the program members of the Chapter must be upper classmen and be in good standing.

To qualify to apply for the program, chapters must have attained the Star Chapter Award in 2019, an award achieved through excellence in leadership, programs and community involvement. The K-State PRSSA Chapter received this award both in 2018 and 2019.

K-State PRSSA is a pre-professional society dedicated to offering members the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of public relations and provide access to professional development opportunities. The Chapter hosts bi-monthly meetings throughout the school year, and organizes groups of people to attend career tours as well as other PRSSA and PRSA sponsored events and conferences.
