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.

Sarah Funderburk, is the recipient of the June 12, 2014 Chapter Champion Award for her dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. She has been a member of the Membership Committee for two years and has been involved with outreach to non-members, as well as the assisting with new member receptions. In addition, Sarah has served on the Awards Celebration Silent Auction Committee for two years. She joined PRSA Georgia in 2011.

"After accepting my first "real" job at Schroder PR, I joined the Georgia Chapter of PRSA because I feel it's very important to be involved in our industry. It's a great way to meet and learn from superstars in PR, and I've become even closer with members while serving on committees."

Sarah was recently promoted to Account Director at Schroder Public Relations, where she leads the Real Estate Division and in-office team. She also contributes to the weekly eNewsletter - The Atlanta 100. Before joining the Schroder team, she completed an account assistant internship with BRAVE PR and a Public Relations and Social Media Internship with the Auburn University Division of Student Affairs. She earned her B.A. in Public Relations with a focus on Marketing from Auburn University.
