Chapter Champion Award

PRSA Georgia's Chapter Champions

This award recognizes PRSA Georgia members who have gone the extra mile in service to the Chapter. The award is presented on a monthly basis, or as appropriate. Eligibility for the award includes all Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond the call of duty as a Chapter volunteer.

Kristina Heuman is the recipient of the December, 2014 Chapter Champion Award for her long-time dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. She has served on the Chapter’s Board of Directors and has chaired numerous committees, including Membership. In addition, she has participated in Real World Collegiate Conference, serving on panels, critiquing resumes and staffing the Career Expo. Currently, sheis co-chair of the Chapter’s PR and Marketing Committee for the 2015 International PRSA conference that our chapter will host in Atlanta. As part of this role, Kristina coordinated the development of a video promoting our Georgia Chapter and Atlanta as the 2015 conference location.

"I decided to become involved with the Georgia Chapter because it was a natural next step after my involvement in PRSSA during college. The connections I have made in this chapter have turned into dear friends, and it gives me great privilege to give back a small bit of what I have received from professionals that have invested in my own growth and development.”

Kristina is currently a Vice President in the Health and Social Impact practice at Porter Novelli, and she is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia.
