    Hello, Deirdre — I really enjoyed this post and it made me even more excited to return to school tonight for the first night of my PR Strategy class for the spring semester at Florida Gulf Coast University. Is it okay for me to reference this post in my blog tomorrow (

    Thanks — and I look forward to being part of the PR student chat at some point — I am an adjunct on the same faculty as Terri Bailey.

    Hi Phyllis, thanks so much for your thoughtful comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and that you’re excited to return to your PR Strategy class at Florida Gulf Coast University. I’d be honored if you reference my post! I look forward to chatting with you during Wednesday’s #PRStudChat discussion. I think it’s going to be fantastic!

    We met in San Diego at the PRSA conference, and it’s just great to see you following through on education this way. Taking the time and effort to recognize educators is wonderful (makes me happy!). We’re the profession’s biggest proponents as many of us have come from corporate and agency.

    Hoping to make the chat tomorrow and letting my new students know all about it!

    Hi Rosanna! Thank you! I’m very passionate about the PR profession and any chance I can to thank an educator, I will! I agree, educators are our profession’s biggest advocates and their dedication and contribution should be recognized. I hope that you can make #PRStudChat tomorrow, and I appreciate you informing your students about it. I think they will really enjoy the discussion.

    It’s interesting that the newly elected President of the Public Relations Institute of Australia is a full time public relations academic, Robina Xavier.

    It’s one way to celebrate the contributions of public relations educators – have them in positions of real influence in our national organisations.

    Thanks, Melanie
