As we transition to a new Executive Board, we want to take the time to thank our past EBoard for all of your hard work, time and commitment to make this such a great organization. You all have had a hand at putting your piece into the bigger puzzle. Below are comments from PRSSA members; what they respected, remembered, enjoyed and benefited from. These words are just the start to how much we all appreciated your work this past year.
“I have only been fortunate to interact with Audra on a couple of occasions, but each time she has been nothing but kind and helpful to me. Any question I have had about PR, she was willing and happy to answer. A truly bright and awesome girl!” -Erin Herner
"Audra, our 'Mom,' she has done such a great job at leading us, and have truly enveloped the idea of leading with kindness. I love to hear how others respect you for this as well, and we will miss you dearly!"
“At first, I was hesitant about the “ice breakers”, but by the end I loved them. They were a great way to get everyone out of their “bubble”. Alica’s high energy and fun personality made going to meetings worth it; you always knew it was going to be fun.”
“She’s so sweet and friendly!”
“I met Kelsey in CAP 305. She was someone I wanted to get know. She carried herself well and knew what she wanted to do. I immediately set course to go on the agency tours she planned. I have met so many wonderful people, including her, through these outings. Thank you for your hard work this semester.”
- Kelsey Juergens
“I’ve never met someone so organized! Kelsey also has great people skills!”
"Being a freshman and new to PRSSA, I really appreciated Jessica Hines' friendliness and knowledge. In particular I really appreciated her help and encouragement on my first blog entry for PRSSA's blog. Jessica has such an approachable, kind personality, and there's no doubt that she is a girl who is going places."
“Jessica has such great writing skills!”
"I have enjoyed learning from Morgan through GrandPR, and have admired her skills to delegate tasks and manage all of our clients. I look forward to following in her footsteps next year, and taking GrandPR to the next level!" -Daltyn Little
“Morgan is such a fun and interesting person. I’m so glad I was able to get to know her better over the past year. Thank you so much for all you do!”
“Leah has the biggest, brightest smile ever! It’s contagious!”
“I started at Grand Valley not knowing anyone. In PRSSA I was lost, but felt at home with the E-Board members. I volunteered for the Warrior Dash fundraiser and Leah made me feel comfortable. It was hard making friends in such a different world than I’m used to. She made that easy; she was engaging and friendly. Thank you so much for all of the work you did this year. Because of you I stuck it out with PRSSA and I’m so glad I did.” -Kelsey Juergens
“Jessica is so well organized! Our chapter couldn’t have done it without you!”
“I loved how personable she was. Jessica was always smiling when she greeted us at the door.”

"PRSSA has taught me many life-long skills that will help me succeed during college and when I begin my career. Through PRSSA I have learned resume building techniques, how to work as a team, and time management. It has also allowed me to gain more confidence of daily aspects in the public relations field. I thoroughly enjoy coming to the bi-weekly meetings and look forward to being part of PRSSA next year. "
- Katie Vanderlinde
"I just want to thank everyone on E-Board who helped make this year's PRSSA meetings a great success! I really enjoyed getting to know you all better through PRSSA and GrandPR, and am so thankful for all of the time and energy that went into planning the meetings, agency tours, and fundraisers. So many of the meetings were standing room only because so many people wanted to attend; which just goes to show how beneficial the meetings were for everyone! Great job, and good luck to everyone next year!"
