Chapter Champion Award: December 2023, Dawn Wotapka

December’s Chapter Champion is Dawn Wotapka, recognizing her contributions to the Professional Development Committee. She was instrumental in planning the Chapter’s session with Leroy Chapman, one of the most successful events of 2023.

“I moved to Atlanta from New York City to work for UPS. I still remember my first PRSA Georgia meeting, the annual media event,” Dawn said. “I saw such enthusiasm and passion. I knew I was in the right place with the right people.”

Dawn is a director of communications with Honeywell Building Technologies, soon to be renamed Building Automation. She’s a former journalist who still loves to tell stories when she isn’t hanging out with her family or training for her next long run.

She graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in communication and journalism, holds an MBA from the University of Georgia and attained a master’s degree in business and economic reporting from NYU.
