The PR Foundation of Houston Announces “All Star” Team

HOUSTON (September 10, 2008) – On September 23 during the PR Day luncheon at the Westin Galleria, the Public Relations Foundation of Houston (PRFH) will recognize 10 “All Stars” that play an important role in helping the Foundation provide scholarships to students studying PR/communications at area universities.

 Receiving accolades are:

·        Continental Airlines

·        Business Wire

·        Houston Astros

·        Houston Tennis Association

·        Halliburton

·        Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa

·        Shell Oil Company

·        Sterling Bank

·        Vollmer Public Relations

·        YMCA of Greater Houston Area

Each of these organizations have provided the staff time, annual contributions and in-kind support necessary to help PRFH raise more than $70,000 for academic scholarships and grants since the fund began in 2001.

Formed in 2001 by the Houston Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the PRFH supports educational excellence by helping prepare high school and college students for careers in public relations and communication.

 

This past April, the PRFH awarded its fourth $1,000 scholarship to Jasmine Vaughan, a senior journalism major at Texas Southern University.
