Junior public relations major, Vanessa Restifo, received a research grant from Westminster College’s Drinko Center for Undergraduate Research to attend the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) Leadership Rally over the summer. The rally was held in Scottsdale, Arizona.

"The guest speakers were professionals in the field of public relations and their topics motivated me to strive for excellence in the field to achieve my future career goals,” said Restifo.

At the rally, Restifo says she picked tips and ideas for a running a successful PRSSA chapter— which she plans to employ during her term as Vice President for Westminster’s chapter.

“The leadership skills I acquired [from the rally] will translate not just to PRSSA, but to other student-run clubs and organizations at WC as well. I intend to teach other student leaders how to have successful organizations too."
