This year’s Parthenon Awards honored five Belmont students amongst other honorees. The event, sponsored by the Public Relations Society of America Nashville Chapter, was held virtually as a Facebook live event on August 31 on PRSA Nashville’s Facebook page.
Public Relations Campaigns students Ladara Lucas (alumna, class of 2019) and seniors Madeline DiMauro, Emily Stembridge and Aliah Tayyun, received a Parthenon Award in the student category. The service-learning class in fall 2019 allowed these four students to develop and implement a campaign entitled “Unlocked: Jewelry with a Purpose.”
Chandi Morar received an Award of Merit for her research project, “Marketing/Communications and Emerging Technologies,” completed in her Public Relations Research class.
Area professionals in public relations and communications also were honored by award presentations. PRSA is the nation’s leading professional organization serving the communications community, with more than 30,000 professional and student members. The Nashville Chapter sponsors five student chapters of Public Relations Student Society of America, including Belmont PRSSA.
