NSPRA is Here for the Kids

Author: NSPRA Staff/Wednesday, October 12, 2022/Categories: News

Earlier this month, NSPRA President Cathy Kedjidjian, APR, and NSPRA Executive Director Barbara M. Hunter, APR, joined national education association leaders in-person and virtually in Washington D.C. to help kick off the Here for the Kids initiative, a critical effort focused on supporting public education and student success.

Led by the Learning First Alliance, the campaign brings together families, educators and community members to shine a light on local public schools and tell the stories of the amazingly positive things happening in classrooms and school buildings nationwide — something school communicators understand the importance of well.

"School communications professionals aren’t just distributors of information," said Kedjidjian on NSPRA's support of the campaign. "The real value of our work comes when we take that information, and we tell the stories of the great things happening in classrooms and playgrounds, on courts and fields, in lunchrooms and hallways. And when we let the community be part of our story." 

Share a School Success Story

The Here for the Kids campaign also aims to further highlight the commitment of educators and school professionals to helping children thrive, despite the unprecedented challenges of the last three years. Over the next few months, NSPRA will continue to help advance these efforts by sharing local school success stories on social media, in communication vehicles and beyond. If you have a local school success story to share, please send it to and be sure to include how school communications played a role.
