The Alan Scott Chapter announced the election of Leah Spector as the public relations director for the spring semester of 2012. Spector was elected via UT PRSSA’s first virtual election. Members were invited to a Facebook event where they were able to view candidates videos and writing samples and vote through a Qualtric’s survey.
Leah Spector, a junior public relations major from Garland, Texas, has been a member of PRSSA since spring 2010. She has been involved in several PRSSA projects and campaigns, including the Cotton “From Blue to Green” denim drive campaign and startup company, HireWired’s, launch event.
Spector also competed last November in the Texas Public Relations Association’s (TPRA) Digital Media Summit in Dallas. The Alan Scott Chapter recieved an award for “Best Critical Thinking” at the competition.
“I have seen the extraordinary growth and development this chapter has accomplished since my freshman year,” Spector said. “I am passionate about how much PRSSA can do for us as communications students, especially in an industry where both your personal and professional development matter so much…I want to be part of the team responsible for PRSSA’s success in getting that message out to our campus and the Austin community.”
Spector experience in writing and media relations includes an internship for Noble Strategic Partners, Inc.. where she was responsible for news releases and article placements.
