Fayette County School System PR Department Wins Top Award

The Public Relations Department of the Fayette County Public School System has received one of the highest national awards in recognition of outstanding public relations practices.

The National School Public Relations Association has awarded the department its 2009 Golden Achievement Award. Fayette’s public relations department was one of only 30 nationwide to receive the honor.

Judges carefully sought outstanding achievement in the four steps of a public relations program to determine the award winners. The steps include: 1) analysis of the need; 2) planning to meet the need; 3) execution and communication of the program; and 4) formal evaluation. A public relations program must meet all four in order to win.

“This is truly an honor. This award signifies that we have one of the top public relations programs in the nation. This is the highest honor awarded to date to the public relations department,” says Public Information Specialist Melinda Berry-Dreisbach.

The public relations department has received both national and state awards for its communication materials since the office opened in 2001. All totaled, the department has been awarded 56 national and state honors.
