The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) inducted PRSSA Kent Faculty Adviser Michele Ewing, APR, into its College of Fellows at the 2014 International Conference in Washington, D.C.
Ewing joined an elite group of 300 professionals who have dedicated more than 20 years of excellence to the public relations industry. Less than two percent of PRSA members are accepted into the College of Fellows.
