The Southern Public Relations Hall of Fame was established in 2010 to recognize the distinguished accomplishments, commitment and leadership of professional public relations practitioners and educators from the southeastern United States, for the benefit of promoting the PR profession. Inductees are former southern public relations practitioners or educators who have brought honor to the PR field.
For more information on the dedication ceremony or to request a HOF 2013 Nomination Form, please contact Hall of Fame Chair Jarrod Ravencraft, a Past President of SPRF, email@example.com.
Induction into the Hall is intended to identify past leaders in our industry whose memory should be honored and promote the profession about the extraordinary achievements, accomplishments and contributions of the inductees as well as SPRF and its members and member organizations.
The Hall is co-sponsored by SPRF and the Mississippi State University Department of Communications and is permanently installed outside the John Grisham Room inside in the Mitchell Memorial Library on the campus of Mississippi State University in Starkville.
