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.

Nicole Henderson is the recipient of the August, 2014 Chapter Champion Award for her dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. She has served on the Annual Conference Committee and led the conference's social media team. In addition, she has helped organize PRSA in Your Neighborhood events in North Atlanta. Most recently, Nicole has joined the Chapter's Social Media Committee and is managing their Twitter channel. She joined PRSA in 2011.

"I decided to become involved with the Georgia Chapter of PRSA because I know that the members are extremely supportive of one another and the continued educational opportunities are priceless. Constant growth is extremely important to me and by serving on the various committees, I have learned from some of the best in PR."

Nicole graduated Magna Cum Laude from North Carolina A & T State University with a BS in Marketing. After graduation, she worked in various capacities of advertising and integrated communications on brands like First Union, Verizon, Michelin North America, and Vanguard Furniture just to name a few. She has also worked with nonprofits such as March of Dimes, the Salvation Army, the United Way, and Junior Achievement on their localized marketing/pr in the regions where she lived. Since this time, Nicole earned her MBA and is now the owner of her own firm called Selsi Enterprises.
