On May 18, the Nashville chapter of the Public Relations Society of America honored President Bob Fisher with the 2009 Apollo Award for Communications Leadership. The PRSA gives this award annually to a senior Middle Tennessee executive “who demonstrates and exemplifies the public relations and communications function within his or her organization.”
Trey Campbell, president of Nashville’s PRSA, said, “Dr. Fisher has transformed the face of Belmont University. His ability to incorporate Belmont University as part of the Nashville community in addition to raising the national profile of the university is a testament to his communications abilities and the importance he places on public perception in his role as president of the university.”
Previous Apollo award winners include Governor Phil Bredesen, John Seigenthaler and Jeff Fisher.
