It's been a good week for West Michigan public relations students and professionals getting national recognition.
First, Derek DeVries, manager of communication technology for Grand Rapids Community College, had an article called "Managing Your College's Online Reputation" published in the Community College Times, a national publication.
Then I learned that Leah Zuber, president of the Grand Valley State University PRSSA chapter, and Angela Hernandez of the Central Michigan University PRSSA chapter, were among 14 recipients of the PRSSA National President's Citation for 2009.
Finally, I noticed that Mikinzie Stuart, a student at Ferris State University, had a nice blog post called "20 Ways PR Students Can Beat the Winter Blues" in the BrazenCareerist blog. The post scored a mention in Ragan's PR Daily.
Kudos to everyone for representing West Michigan and the public relations professional so well!
