CEDAR FALLS, Iowa—Trevor Rayhons, AMPERAGE Marketing & Fundraising’s public relations & copywriting associate, was elected as vice president of member services for the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) National Committee during the PRSSA National Assembly in Miami, March 8-11.
“AMPERAGE is very proud of Trevor for all of his accomplishments, including his most recent honor of being elected to the PRSSA national committee,” said Lori Davis, director of public relations, AMPERAGE. “Trevor has been an incredible asset to our public relations department and our clients. I’m confident he’ll bring the same professional expertise to the national PRSSA, and Pfizer media relations in New York, as their summer intern. We’re also thrilled he’s pursuing his master’s at DePaul in Chicago this fall; it’s one of the top five public relations and advertising graduate programs in the country.”
Rayhons will join seven officials on the PRSSA National Committee and serve a one-year term beginning on June 1, 2018. More than 200 students and advisers from across the country attended the four-day career and leadership training, where delegates also elected the society’s 2018-2019 national committee.
“Over the next year I plan to focus on creating additional recruitment tools, developing new member engagement strategies and building the society’s community college and high school outreach efforts,” said Rayhons. “Our society has grown exponentially in its 50-year existence. By forging ahead for the next generation of public relations professionals, I want to continue PRSSA’s legacy of enhancing education, broadening networks and launching careers.”
