Learning & Liberty Legacy Leader Recognition


Thank a Mentor or Colleague with Recognition as a Learning & Liberty Legacy Leader

Every one of us has a special place in our hearts for NSPRA colleagues and leaders who have helped us to grow and advance professionally and personally in our careers. Most often, these unsung heroes generously share their knowledge, skills, expertise, advice and time unselfishly, for the simple reward of seeing a colleague succeed.

Now you, or your chapter, can recognize the many contributions of those NSPRA members who have had a positive impact on their colleagues’ careers and who work tirelessly behind the scenes on behalf of education and improved communication. By honoring a mentor or colleague, you will also be supporting the NSPRA Foundation for the Advancement of Education in its Communication Accountability Program research and in providing scholarships to the NSPRA Seminar each year.

For a minimum tax-exempt gift of $75 to the Foundation for the Advancement of Education, you can nominate your mentor or colleague for recognition as a Learning & Liberty Legacy Leader. Those honored as Learning and Liberty Legacy Leaders will receive a special certificate and have their name permanently listed on our website and included in the member recognitions during the Annual Meeting at the NSPRA National Seminar.


Eligible nominees must hold a current professional membership with NSPRA and have been a member for a minimum of five years. Nominations of retired members and posthumous nominations are also acceptable, with minimum membership requirement over course of career. Retired members who are working in school PR in some capacity (i.e., part-time or consulting) but no longer maintain a membership are not eligible for this recognition.


Any current NSPRA member may nominate a colleague for this recognition. A minimum tax-exempt gift of $75 must accompany the nomination.


Nominations may be submitted at any time, but must be received by June 1 each year in order to include the individual's name in member recognitions at the NSPRA National Seminar.

Announcement and Presentation

Nominating chapters/members will receive a certificate with the recipient’s name that is suitable for framing, along with a letter of commendation. Nominating chapters/members are encouraged to schedule a special presentation to present the award.

Honorees names will be permanently listed on the NSPRA website and included in member recognitions at the Annual Meeting during the NSPRA National Seminar in July.
