MSPRA is an Exemplary Chapter
Only one of six in the nation

MSPRA has been named an Exemplary Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) for the 10th year in a row! Only six NSPRA chapters were so honored this year. The recognition is a wonderful birthday gift as our members continue to celebrate our 60th Anniversary. This achievement is the result of winning two Mark of Distinction Awards, one for Professional Development and one for Collaboration. Michigan is the only chapter to receive two awards. MSPRA leaders will receive the awards at NSPRA's Annual Seminar in Washington, D.C. in July.
