On April 6, the Ralph C. Darrow Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America at Kent State University (PRSSA Kent) celebrated #BetsyDay in a way that truly represents what it means to be a female leader in the public relations field.
Once being challenged to participate in #BetsyDay we decided the best way would be to highlight female leaders. We watched the Plank Center’s documentary about Ms. Plank with our Executive Board and our members, along with reading all about the great accomplishments of Ms. Plank’s career. One thing that caught our attention was how impactful of a leader Betsy Plank was and how she never gave up on giving back to her community.
