NSPRA Honors Four Front-Runners in 2021-22

NSPRA is pleased to announce the four NSPRA Front-Runners for 2021-22: Krystyna Baumgartner, APR, Kristin Boyd Edwards, Julia Burgos and Anisa Sullivan Jimenez, APR. These association members were identified by the NSPRA Executive Board as emerging leaders who are doing outstanding work for their schools, their chapters and for NSPRA. Congratulations!

This annual distinction is awarded to four association members each year, representing the seven NSPRA regions on a rotating basis. Each Front-Runner Award recipient will be formally recognized during the Annual Meeting and Celebration of Achievement at the NSPRA 2022 National Seminar in July and profiled in upcoming issues of NSPRA's Member Memo e-newsletter.
