Last week I had the pleasure of attending an event at Boston University where the PRSSA Students unveiled a new scholarship – the PRSSA/Steven Quigley Scholarship. The scholarship will go toward PRSSA National dues for a PRSSA student member who displays the same passion and drive for the industry that Professor Quigley has shown and practices every day
According to Alexandra Karadimas, President of the Edward L. Bernays Chapter of PRSSA at Boston University, “During his 30-year career, Professor Stephen Quigley has touched the minds of each and every student entering the Public Relations industry at Boston University. Through his engaging classes and compassionate advising, Professor Quigley continues to provide astute attention to the changing issues of our profession. Professor Quigley has provided encouragement, guidance and inspiration to students aspiring to pursue a career in public relations.”
While at times I felt like I was attending a memorial (Steve still has a long career ahead of him), it was a very moving event. Michael Cherenson and Bill Murray of PRSA National also took the time out of their busy schedules to write a letter to Steve recognizing his work.
