UM Professor Wins 2003 PRSA Outstanding Educator Award

Another great news (sorry for posting it so late):

Dr. Donn W. Stacks, Public Relations and Advertising Program Director at UM School of Communication (and, on a personal note, my former graduate advisor), has received recently the 2003 PRSA Outstanding Educator Award.

Here is a quote from the PRSA's press release announcing the award:

The Outstanding Educator Award recognizes excellence in teaching based on contemporary, research-based knowledge of public relations and contributions to the advancement of public relations education. This year's recipient, Don Winslow Stacks, Ph.D., professor of communications, University of Miami School of Communications, was recognized for his leadership role at research conferences in Miami for practitioners and educators alike - a valuable contribution that has made a dramatic impact on international research efforts. Stacks was lauded for his understanding of the importance of research and has cultivated this knowledge to the benefit of educators, students and other public relations professionals.

Other professionals honored with PRSA Individual Awards are John D. Graham, APR, Fellow PRSA, the chairman and CEO of Fleishman-Hillard Inc., and Victoria "Torie" Clarke, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs and chief spokesperson for the Pentagon.
