NSPRA Honors Outgoing Executive Board Officers

Five current members of the NSPRA Executive Board will reach the end of their terms of office in September 2020.  The association and its members have all benefited from the leadership and countless hours of service volunteered by:  Kelly Avants, APR,  president for 2019-2020; Heidi Otero, vice president for diversity engagement for 2017-2020; Cathy Kedjidjian, APR, vice president at large for communication technology and innovation for 2018-2020; Peg Mannion, APR, North Central Region vice president for 2017-2020; and Tony Heaberlin, APR, South Central Region vice president for 2017-2020.

Four plaques of wood and brass to honor outgoing board vice presidents"These are all quality professionals in the field of school PR, who have been generous in sharing their insights, talents and time with NSPRA. Our national association is stronger for the dedication of our volunteer leaders," said Executive Director Rich Bagin, APR.

Outgoing Executive Board members are typically honored by the association during the Closing Banquet of the NSPRA National Seminar. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Seminar, NSPRA is instead mailing celebratory plaques to the outgoing board members. The plaques for the outgoing vice presidents are pictured.

Leadership on the NSPRA Executive Board transitions each year on October 1, when newly elected and affirmed members formally take office.  Learn more about the Executive Board.
