Megan Donaldson is this year’s recipient of the New Professional Award of Excellence given to an up-and-comer in the local public relations community. Considered an indicator of “who to watch in public relations,” this award honors a chapter member who has entered the public relations field within the past five years. It recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a commitment to advancing public relations through career achievements, volunteerism and the highest professional standards.
Donaldson, a 2015 University of Oklahoma graduate in public relations, is the public relations coordinator at ZGF Architects in Portland. In college, Donaldson was active in her university’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter and completed community service in the Gamma Phi Beta Honor Society.
A dedicated PRSA Portland volunteer, Donaldson is the chapter’s 2016 newsletter editor, producing bi-weekly newsletters and email communications to roughly 1,250 subscribers and chapter members.
Congratulations, Megan! We look forward to celebrating you at our upcoming Spotlight Awards on October 6.
