Susan Barnes was invited to judge the 2011 Public Relations Student Society of America’s annual Bateman Case Study Competition April 9 in New York. She joined a team of judges to review 49 case study entries from universities across the country. Three finalists were chosen to present their cases in May in New York. Among the honorable mention winners in the competition was a team from Lee University coached by Kevin Trowbridge, who will join the Belmont public relations faculty in the fall. The Bateman competition is the most prestigious competition sponsored by PRSSA.
