Brianna Newman, a junior at Champlain College and a resident of Maplewood, N.J., has been awarded the 2019 Yankee Chapter PRSA Scholarship. This year for the fifth time, the annual scholarship is sponsored by EDvestinU®, the NH Higher Education Loan Program’s Nonprofit Student Loan Lending and Refinancing Program.
At Champlain College, Newman is pursuing a major in public relations with a minor in event management. She is an active member of the college’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
The Yankee Chapter PRSA Scholarship recognizes the academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and commitment to public relations of a student with a declared major in a public relations-related field studying at a degree-granting college or university in Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont.
The Yankee Chapter will begin accepting applications for the 2020 scholarship early next year.
