Parry Receives Honorable Mention

Pam Parry, associate professor of journalism, has received an “honorable mention” in the graduate category of the 2010 Kathanne W. Greene Award, an annual essay competition sponsored by the Committee on Services and Resources for Women at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. The award is for her paper titled “Second Fiddle, Not Second Rate: Associate Role Obscures Anne Williams Wheaton’s Contributions to Public Relations.” She will be recognized at the university’s Women’s History Month awards ceremony on March 31. Parry is working on her doctor of philosophy degree from Southern Miss, and her research on Wheaton is a part of her dissertation on the public relations strategy of the Eisenhower administration. Wheaton was the first woman to be appointed an associate press secretary to a sitting U.S. president.
